Gig City Holidays at EPB

A little past 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday evening, the screening went up on the holiday windows at EPB’s downtown headquarters.

The displays by the numbers

-20,000 LED lights

-40-plus moving characters

-40-plus lighted trees

A small crowd gathered to be the first in town to see Gig City Holidays, this year’s addition to what has been an annual tradition for more than 60 years.

The displays are split into two locations: The Market Street windows cast Santa, Mrs. Claus and a team of elves vacationing in Chattanooga-known as Gig City-while the Board Street windows depict what life is like on the North Pole.

The windows are the product of nearly 50 EPB employees’ design and building skills and will be up until early January.
