Seasons change and so do the street pole decorations in the Town of Herndon. During the week of Nov. 13, Herndon's Department of Public Works exchanged their American flags flown in observance of Veterans Day for winter wreaths.
According to Johnny Johnson, Department of Public Works, the crew installed and tested approximately 90 vintage-style wreaths, each with a red bow at the bottom and centering either replica red bells or white gas lanterns. Each wreath took 2-3 men to balance and hoist up to Johnson. After the crew left and the sun set, one by one the Elden Street wreaths turned on – from the Herndon Parkway intersection on its western end to Fairfax County Parkway to the east – marking the beginning of the town’s holiday season.”
