(December 1st – 21st) in various locations city-wide!
Every year, you have that one neighbor that outdoes everyone, right (or you are that person)? They light up their homes like Clark Griswold and brighten up the whole neighborhood! Or maybe their decorations are a bit simpler and more sophisticated yet beautiful to behold. Whether silly or serious, bold or basic, decorating your home could certainly light up someone’s life this season! Therefore, we are continuing the fun with our second annual Home for the Holidays Outdoor Decorating Contest.
To enter: decorate your home’s exterior and submit your address and last/household name to Community Relations Administrator, Ashton Greer, via email at agreer@cityofdanville.com by Tuesday, December 7th at the latest! The City will use this to create a list of houses for folks to drive by and see. Once the list is complete, we will share it on the City website and on City Facebook pages!
There will be 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in two categories: City Selection and People’s Choice Awards.
The City Selection will be made by Mayor Williams and City Team Members (one from each department). The People’s Choice will be made by you via vote as follows:
To vote: (1 vote/user allowed) post a picture you snap of your favorite decorated home on the designated FB post by Tuesday, December 21st at 12 a.m.!
1st Place Prizes: Each receives a $100 Google Play Gift Card, $50 in local business gift certificates, an engraved traveling holiday trophy that you can proudly display until next holiday season, and you will be the Grand Marshal of the Night of Lights parade the following year!
2nd Place Prizes: Each receives $75 in local business gift certificates
3rd Place Prizes: Each receives $50 in local business gift certificates
Prizes are sponsored by Classic Homes Realty!
