Newtown, CT Holiday Decorating Contest

Newtown, CT Holiday Decorating Contest  The 2016 Holiday season brought something new to Newtown, CT - the Holiday Decorating Contest.  This new tradition was born from the memories of a local resident who grew up in New Jersey.  Her town had such a competition when she was growing up and her fond memories of it made her want to share it with the people of Newtown.

Newtown, CT Holiday Decorating Contest

She started with a Facebook Page for the Holiday Decorating Contest and as the excitement for this event grew, people flocked to this page.  She lines judges, and sponsors and even a bus for the judges to go around town.  Then she got the crafty people to make stars that were put out at the winner's home and star keepsake ornaments for the winners to keep.  Oh, and the categories ... tons of categories for the town's entrants.

A local photographer will take a photo of each winning home and they will be posted to the Facebook page.  Check out the album for Fan Favorite - voting ends at 12:00 Noon on December 23, 2016.

There were no entry fees.

All she asked was that the people of Newtown spead the word about the contest and enjoy themselves while out viewing the homes in the 2016 Holiday Decorating Contest.
