Huge thanks to the Town of Amherst DPW Electrical crew for working hard to get the trees to stay lit! Kendrick Park and the Common are all set now and the Sweetser Park tree should be fully operational early next week. Our apologies for some dark nights.
Happy holidays; we'll see you around downtown!
