The Irvington Springfield Avenue Business Improvement District (ISABID) has completed its 2020 holiday decorations project for your enjoyment as you shop in our business district.
160 pole decorations were installed by two different decorations vendors and feature garland/red bow wraps around the small black antique poles in Irvington Center, flanked by bells on the eastern (Newark) end of the district and by candy canes on the western (Maplewood) end of the district. Our "Seasons Greetings" skyline also returned this year to the ISABID's banner poles near Civic Square.
In all, the ISABID expended more than $30,000 on the decorations, which will be on display through early January, 2021.
The Township of Irvington has waived its parking fees for the
first two hours for ISABID shoppers throughout the holiday season.
