Holiday Lights Go Modern

Springdale Switches To LED Snowflakes

Posted: November 24, 2012 at 5 a.m.

Christmas decorations hang Friday from poles along Emma Avenue in Springdale. The city changed out many light bulbs to LED lights in the hopes of brighter lights that last longer and use less energy.

Christmas lights on Emma Avenue should be brighter and cheaper for the city to operate this year.
