What do you call those great string lights we see on East 4th St and the East Bank of the Flats?

Side of store lit up with market lights

If you have the pleasure to enjoy an evening out on East 4th Street or the East Bank of the flats, you’ve no doubt enjoyed some of the great overhead string lighting. This lighting turns a favorite Cleveland evening spot into a magical one. There’s something about light and the way it transforms a space. Creative and magical overhead lighting transforms a space even more.

Reminiscent of days gone by, these overhead string lights not only illuminate effectively over a larger area but they also create a festive atmosphere. If you’re considering adding some of these lights to your backyard patio, you’ve probably seen this type of lighting called many things including fiesta lights, party lights, string lights, and even festoon lights. This may lead you to speculate whether all outdoor corded light strings are the same. As you can imagine, the answer is no. Whether you’ve considered adding these lights to your home or to your commercial area, you realize the challenges in selecting, installing and providing power to the lighting. If the lights are going to cover a wide span, what ensures they will stay successfully suspended in rough weather? Do you need to worry about one particular bulb blowing out? Will they provide enough light to be functional?

With Outdoor Lighting Perspectives, you don’t need to worry about any of these questions. Leave the logistics, sourcing and professional installation to us.
