Winter Lights Campaign Brightens Up Orleans

Filed Under: Other News

ORLEANS – The Orleans Chamber of Commerce and the Orleans Cultural District are helping the town twinkle through the winter months with a Winter Lights campaign that aims to encourage business during the chilly off-season.

Started in 2013 with participation from about 60 offices, stores, restaurants and gas stations on Main Street, Beach Road and routes 6A and 28, the annual tradition involves displaying blue lights from January through the Spring Equinox to let people know that despite falling temperatures and falling snow, Orleans is still open for business.

To ensure as many lights as possible, the Orleans Cultural District ordered a supply through Ace Hardware on Route 28, which provided the lights at a generous discount. JoAnna Keeley, chair of the Cultural District Committee, took orders from local venues and distributed the lights, which will be on display at various locations throughout town until March 20.

The Orleans Chamber of Commerce builds, promotes and supports the Orleans business community. The Orleans Chamber of Commerce advocates for approximately 270 members led by a volunteer board of directors. The Chamber also spearheads tourism marketing efforts for its members as well as for the Town of Orleans. For more information call 508-255-7203 or visit
