This contest is nondenominational, decided by community, and all are welcome to participate.
Nomination Night (In-Person Event)
Join us this Saturday for in-person Nomination Night. We will setup our tent at the corner of Tripp and Granville. All community members are welcome to walk or drive up and get some hot chocolate and cookies. We will also give you a nomination card. Then you can scout the neighborhood and nominate well-decorated homes.
This will be a fun activity for individuals and families that want to appreciate and recognize the efforts of our neighbors and the beauty of our community. The weather looks decent this Saturday, considering the time of year.
Participants can return nomination cards to our tent between 4:30 and 7:30 on Saturday, December 17th. We will then take photos of the 20 homes that receive the most nominations and add them to a gallery. Then the voting period will open.

Where: Tripp and Granville
When: Saturday, December 17th from 4:30 – 7:30 PM
