Brighten up

    Newhope’s Canon Square is about to get a lot brighter. The Bucks County town center will get a revamped holiday display thanks to two new residents.


    Paul Beckwith and David Cannell moved to Newhope two years ago after years of visiting, but though the annual holiday display could use some work. The pair teamed up with Winterland, Inc. to bring a holiday light show to the historic town.

    The 16-minute light show will debut Sunday at 6 p.m. with nightly shows running at 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. through Jan. 1., the Bucks County Courier Times reports. Additional shows will be added at 10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
