The Christmas Lighting Challenge Announces Winners
After weeks of voting and great efforts by folks in the Northland, we have our winners in their respective areas and categories.
There used to be a contest that was overseen by the Duluth News-Tribune a while ago that had everyone in the city of Duluth voting. A Sweet Event and Bentleyville took it over and opened it up to businesses and a larger area.
I took the map and went around to the displays and I really think the storm made it hard to decorate. So, I didn't see that many displays this year. The ones I did see were wonderful. There were a couple I missed and those were winners so I will have to go back and see them.
Directly from the Christmas Lighting Challenge website here are the winners:
Micheal & Kathy Wilson - 3604 Decker Rd
Solutions Insurance Agencies
Brandon Johnson - 1107 North 7th St
Richard I. Bong Veterans Historical Center
Luke Grages - 7249 Industrial Rd
Reliable Insurance Agency
Brett & Amanda DeFoe - 2101 E 3rd St
Favorite Christmas City
Winners will be present Friday at Bentleyville for an award ceremony.
The event takes place at 10:00 a.m. in front of the giant tree next to the cookie hut.
This will be a great photo/interview opportunity as we present the wining families and businesses with a gift basket and plaques. The community chosen winners will be announced Friday the 20th.
There is a full list of how many votes each house and business received at the Christmas LIghting Challenge Website.
