The Sylvania Area Chamber of Commerce proudly announces, “Complete the Street,” a lighting project to complete the entire first block of Main Street in Downtown Sylvania with holiday lights and year-round bubble lights.

“Light Up Tree City – Downtown Sylvania Under the Lights,” the original lighting project that was completed in 2017, made a major impact in Downtown Sylvania. The Sylvania Chamber is proud to “Complete the Street” and ensure the entire block is covered in lights.

The current lights display includes 3 sets of bubble lights that hang between buildings along Main Street creating a canopy of year-round ambiance. Large grapevine globes and a massive snowflake piece are added in early November for the holiday season, creating a gorgeous display unlike any other in Northwest Ohio.

“Light Up Tree City – Downtown Sylvania Under the Lights” was featured on the cover of Bronner’s 2018 CHRISTmas annual catalog. Bronner’s chose to highlight Downtown Sylvania on the cover because of the ambiance and the unique scene it created. The catalog is distributed to over 5,500 towns across the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico, and Guam. Downtown Sylvania is the first town in the United States to create a canopy of lights like this across a major thoroughfare.

“Complete the Street” will add 9 additional sets of cables and lights. The project also includes the purchase of additional seasonal fixtures to enhance the atmosphere on Main Street year-round.

Michelle Sprott, Executive Director, Sylvania Area Chamber of Commerce, will work with donors in the Sylvania area to raise the necessary funding needed to purchase the strings of lights, globes, and other fixtures as well as the engineering, drilling and electricity needed to “Complete the Street.”

“I am thrilled for the opportunity to continue improving the entire Sylvania community by creating an inviting and magical ambiance in Historic Downtown Sylvania. With new development projects on the horizon in Downtowns Sylvania and throughout the region, the need to expand Sylvania’s exposure is vital to maintain the reputation as the premier destination in Northwest Ohio to live, work and play. Our goal is to continue creating an experience unlike any other in the region for people to enjoy when visiting, shopping and dining,” Michelle Sprott, Executive Director, Sylvania Area Chamber of Commerce.

The Sylvania Chamber is committed to completing this project to enhance the entire Sylvania community, drive economic and continue giving Sylvania national exposure through this unmatched lighting display.
