Get Ready For The Fifth Annual Holiday Lighting Contest
It’s time for the Town of Estes Park’s Fifth Annual HolidayLighting Contest sponsored by the Town of Estes Park, The Ambassadors and the Estes Park News. The lighting contest is open to all residents of the Estes Valley and will be a fun event that will brighten up our community and bring people together!
This exciting contest was started by former Mayor John Baudek who thought it would be a great idea to bring back holiday joy and some old-fashioned fun to our community.
Mayor Bill Pinkham has continued this tradition and said, “This town is just beautiful year round, and what better way to add beauty to the holidays than by adding some pretty sparkling lights on our homes and businesses. And this contest is just plain fun!”
The contest consists of three parts, entering, decorations and judging.
Entry: Fill out your entry form and directions to your home and turn in by December 4th at 5:00 p.m. to the Town of Estes Park.
Decorations: Have the outside of your home or business decorated and ready by Friday, December 11th.
Judges will visit the homes and businesses entered in the contest after December 11 so make sure your lights are on. Winners will be announced in the December 25, 2009 Estes Park News, along with beautiful photos of their homes and businesses.
Go wild, have fun, be artistic and use your imagination. Everything from reindeer on roofs, Santa in a full North Pole environment, life size sleds with gifts, get into the holiday spirit and light the lights!
