2019 Colonial Hills Holiday Decorating Contest and Photos

Brrrr…it was cold outside but the judges’ debate over the Lighting Contest winners was RED HOT this year. Snow sparkled on the fine streets of Colonial Hills as the judges marshaled forth to pick their decorated favorites.

As always, there is a long list of worthy contenders, so we honorably mention the following finalists for their heartwarming displays:

  • 492 Kenbrook – The judges enjoyed Ralphie from “a Christmas Story”
  • 5595 Greenwich – House outlined with lights – no fear of heights – and the Blow Up Truck w/ a tree
  • 322 Loveman – Pirate Xmas and flamingos – quirky and fun
  • 71 Southington – White lights galore and an angel
  • 63 Southington – Artful wreath and lights around the door
  • 583 Loveman – The Grinch on the Roof!
  • 5671 Indianola – Santa!
  • 528 N. Selby – Nicely lit up – even the side yard shed was decked out
  • 306?? Colonial – No lights, but a lovely display of live deer in the front yard. How did they do that??!! 😉

Of course, difficult decisions had to be made, and the winners for 2019 are….cymbal crash……
