It’s the most joyous time of year, and it just got a little bit brighter thanks to Netflix!Netflix decided this year needed an extra helping hand to spread the holiday cheer and decided to select just 6 cities in the U.S to bring full light displays for the town to enjoy! Along with Augusta, Ga, the other recipient cities were: Vallejo, Ca, Stroudsburg, Pa, Natchez, Ms, Alton, Il. and Norman, Ok.
According to Netflix Spokesperson, Sara Blue, they reached out to various cities around the country with this proposition and Augusta responded happily! She said, “in what has been a rough year for many, the holiday season brings the much anticipated opportunity for an escape to a more joyous time, people are ready for the holidays,” Blue said in a statement. “We wanted to keep the merriment alive during these unprecedented times by resurrecting displays and bringing some holiday cheer.”
Initially, Netflix wished to remain an anonymous donor to these mid-sized cities. It was only until the permits were filed that the city knew who was behind this tiny Christmas miracle!
Mayor Hardie Davis said the decision was an easy one, and extended a big ‘Thanks’ to Netflix for boosting the Holiday joy around the CSRA! Mayor Davis went on to say, “as the lights go up and shine brightly over the next few weeks, it is my prayer that they bring hope and joy to all that see them.”
Check out this amazing display between 7th and 8th street Downtown Augusta from now until the first week of January!
