Charles City residents and businesses are being challenged to help brighten things up this holiday season.
The Charles City Chamber of Commerce is promoting “December Nights & Dazzling Lights,” a community-wide effort to decorate for the holidays and light up the night in Charles City. There is no cost to be a part of this holiday driving tour around town, which will run December 4-31.
Charles City Tourism and Marketing Coordinator Ginger Williams says
“This is an opportunity to step back, relax a bit and just enjoy the season and be a part of this community. Who doesn’t enjoy a good holiday display, whether it is creating one or driving around and checking out the sights?”
How you decorate is entirely up to you. Any home, business or group is welcome to participate in the December Nights & Dazzling Lights.
Awards and bragging rights will go to the locations judged to have the best Classic Christmas Display, Best Single Decoration, Best Decorated Tree (visible from the street), Most Original Display and the Most Dazzling Light Display. A panel of judges will determine the wining locations and the winners will receive a special sign to display in their yards or windows.
Again, there is no cost to participate … simply sign up by December 1. For more information contact the Chamber at (641) 228-4234 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
