What Happened to Banner Over Lancaster Ave?

The banner announcing the Berwyn Christmas Tree Lighting mysteriously disappeared within hours of being hung Friday.

Eagle-eyed drivers and observant Patch readers may have noticed something missing over Lancaster Avenue over the weekend.

A history-making banner that was hung over Lancaster Avenue Friday morning disappered almost as quickly as it appeared.

The banner made history because it is the first-ever to clear all the bureaucratic hurdles to get the ok to be hung over Lancaster Avenue in Berwyn.

Now you see it, now you don't

According to informed sources, there was a glitch with a piece of the rigging hardware used to hang the banner and it came down in an apparent high wind sometime around noon on Friday. There were no injuries and no traffic incidents caused when the banner came down.

A banner project insider tells Patch that the hardware problem has been corrected and crews are expected to be back out Monday morning to re-hang the banner.

The 2nd public hanging in the history of the township was just completed (9 am this morning). The banner is back. The Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony will be held on 12/2 starting at 5:30 pm. Come one come all. Santa, Mrs. Claus, and one of their LIVE reindeer will be waiting for you.
