Holiday Decorating Contest

Are you that person who starts planning holiday decorations in January? Then we have a contest for you. The rest of you mere mortals who decorate later in the year are welcomed to join too. Use the buttons above to enter or scroll down.

Just decorate your home or business – making sure it’s publicly viewable. Then enter below, depending which town you are in. Judges will review all submissions and announce winners¬†here on the website. Our last print publication of 2021 is December 16. We take a couple of weeks to spend with our families, and our first 2022 print issue will be January 13. So all winners will be featured here and on our Facebook page.

By entering, you’ll be subscribed to our holiday email list. You can unsubscribe at any time through the link in the footer of any email.
