Seasonal street decorations and brightly painted windows make Fair Lawn’s River Road District a fun and festive place to shop and dine locally during the holidays. And, the people who help keep the tradition alive wouldn’t have it any other way.

This year, nearly 40 businesses, restaurants and commercial properties in the River Road District, are participating in the window painting programA total of 60 windows were professionally painted with colorful images and seasonal messages including Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas and Happy Chanukah. In addition, light poles throughout the district have been decorated with festive wreaths.

Diana Vitrano and Sheila Tarantula, RRIC promotion coordinators, noted there are several newcomers to the program this year, including both longtime businesses like Amira Fresh Fruits & Vegetables (12-64 River Road) and others that have opened in recent months. Many were excited to be a part of the holiday window painting program after taking part in the successful Halloween Trick or Treat and Pet Walk & Fair events held this fall in the River Road District.

“River Road is Fair Lawn’s family-friendly, neighborhood business district and the holiday decorations are a special way to demonstrate hospitality and goodwill,” noted Robert Landzettel, President of the River Road Improvement Corporation (RRIC). The River Road District’s business and commercial property owners sponsor the holiday decorations, in addition to other programs and services that benefit the local community.

“During the holiday season and all year-round, we encourage people to shop and dine locally,” Landzettel continued. “The businesses in Fair Lawn’s River Road District offer a wide range of products from around the world, excellent holiday dining and catering, plus personal and professional services perfect for distinctive gifts for family and friends.”
