Thanksgiving is coming, and so are Holiday decorations. Macomb will host a city wide lighting contest for residents in, and around Macomb. Participants can decorate their houses as much as they desire before December 18th. On the eighteenth, judging will be based off of workmanship, originality, color, scale and proportion, neatness, and suitability to the Holidays.
You can decorate your house to your hearts desire, but there are a few contest rules that you need to follow. Your house may only use outdoor lighting. If you are a past time Holiday light winner, you may participate, but are not eligible for an award. Finally every entry must be turned in by December 16th.
A total of $500 in Chamber of Commerce Gift Certificates will be given to the top three house holds. First place will receive $250 in certificates, second $150 in certificates, and third place will win a total of $100 in certificates. To participate in the special Holiday contest, stop by the Chamber of Commerce Office on North Lafayette Street.
