FAIRFIELD — The “Wonderland on Roseville” Christmas light display is drawing even more attention these days.

After a story about a petition seeking the town’s help in controlling traffic and parking created by visitors to the Halliwell family’s 18-year tradition, and the Halliwells’ conclusion that the petition could mean an end to the display, the story has drawn attention from all over, on social media, and television.

Comments range from those who say they can understand the problem of living with the crowds and traffic generated by Wonderland to those critical of Sawyer Road resident Nadine Losquadro, who circulated the petition signed by members of 28 different households on Sawyer and Roseville Terrace.

In a comment posted to the Fairfield Citizen’s website, Losquadro said while maybe ending the display is the Halliwells’ response to the petition, that was not at all the intent.

“The petition does not protest the display,” Lesquadro wrote. “It simply asks the town to help control traffic and parking in the neighborhood to make it safer for everyone. Nothing more. I hope I can speak for all my neighbors when I say we enjoy the lights display and the charity it brings. We’re not asking for it to end.”

The Halliwells do not charge admission to the display but do accept contributions for the Shriners Children’s Hospital in Springfield, Ma.

In an effort to quiet complaints, police have posted temporary parking restrictions along one side of Roseville Terrace, and during the hours the light display is open to the public, traffic is one way into Roseville, with all traffic exiting back out to Black Rock Turnpike via Sawyer Road.

“As the influx of people grows as it gets closer to the holiday, we will make more accommodations to include making one side of Sawyer Road ‘no parking’ as well,” Lt. Robert Kalamaras said. “We understand this is a quality of life issue. While it’s also for a good cause, it affects many of the residents around it with increased vehicle and pedestrian traffic.”

Kalamaras said the department’s hope is that the event — which runs through New Year’s Day — can remain, while they attempt to mitigate some of the neighbors’ concerns as best they can.

Patrol officers assigned to that section of town will regularly monitor the amount of traffic that visits the neighborhood, and patrols will increase as needed. So far, Kalamaras said, there have been no issues reported.

The Halliwell’s daughter, Maryann, said Wednesday that things have been going well at Wonderland since the lights were turned on Thanksgiving Day, and the safety measures seem to be working. “So far, so good,” she said.
