2018 Holiday Decorating Contest Awards

We certainly are a creative neighborhood! Our judges were impressed with the variety of our homes’ holiday decorating. Some homes are charming, sweet, nostalgic, fun or downright amazing – like the high star on Park Blvd, which our judges loved, but it defied category. Hmmm…. Thinking cap on…….

It was a clear, cold night for judging, and we (our judges’ helpers/photographers) were thrilled to see an adorable red fox emerge from the brush at the corner of Park Overlook and Indianola – It ran down Indianola on swift little feet and hid behind some bushes before I could snap a good photo.

If we were recognizing blocks, the judges’ favorites were the 200 block of Loveman and the 200 block of Colonial. But every street in the neighborhood had some lovely displays, so be sure to walk around after dusk and enjoy the splendor!
