Main Street of HOPE is again sponsoring a Deck The Town Christmas lights competition.

All homes in the Hope town limits that are decorated for Christmas on or before Sunday night, Dec. 15th will be eligible to win. Photos for those displays eligible for the contest will be posted on the Main Street of HOPE Facebook page by end of the day on Monday, Dec. 16th.

In order to vote you only need to  page through the beautiful photos and “Like” your favorite photos. You need to “Like” the Main Street of HOPE Facebook page in order to be an eligible voter. Voting will continue through Saturday, Dec. 21st at 10 p.m. In case of a tie, the Main Street of HOPE committee will be the tiebreaker.

You do not need to live in the area to “vote”.

The Christmas light display with the most “Likes” on the Main Street of HOPE Facebook page will be awarded a traveling “Leg Lamp”, similar to that made famous in the movie classic “The Christmas Story” with Ralphie and his Red Ryder BB gun. The winners can keep the Leg Lamp until mid-January and then we will put the lamp back in storage until next year, and put the winners name and address on a commemorative plaque which will also travel with the lamp in the future.
