Lights have a magical quality that help brighten our spirits. Knowing this, we urged Peninsula residents to participate in the Holiday Door Decorating Contest.
Twenty-five Peninsula households registered for the door decorating contest. The contest was judged by Marianne Hite from the Peninsula Art Academy. The doors represented everything magical about the holidays from whimsical, creative, secular, sacred, and traditional.
The prize basket from the Chamber members was awarded to the Perry Family at 1754 Main Street. Honorable mentions go to the Craig home at 6086 Riverview, the Brunswick homes at 1550 E. Mill Street, and the Hensley home at 6112 N. Locust St.
Peninsula has many homes that are wonderfully decorated and were not all registered for the contest. Please enjoy the magic of lights as you drive or walk the following streets: the entire street of Locust from the North to the South, Main Street from West to East, Center Street, Bronson Street, and Riverview close to the library. Thanks to all who have decorated their homes this unique Holiday Season!
