Each holiday season, the Weed Chamber sponsors a holiday yard lighting contest within Weed with 3 winners who will each receive a check for $25 from the Weed Chamber of Commerce. All homes were judged on their outdoor decorations only and judging Categories were Best Traditional Home, A Child’s Christmas, and Most Spectacular Yard Display. This yearsjudging took place on Friday Dec. 18th.
The 2009 contest winners are Gary and Nicole Ericcson of the Carrick Addition for Most Spectacular Yard Display. Kim Greene’s yard on Oregon Street won for “Best Traditional Home Display,” and Rolondo Avila’s yard on California Street won for “A Child’s Christmas.”
As one of the judges I can say it was very difficult to narrow down to just three winners. Weed really came out and decorated their yards from lights and garlands to Merry-go-rounds, giant snow globes, reindeer, it was amazing! There were many neighborhoods that offered up spectacular displays including the Lincoln Heights area and School Hill neighborhoods to name just a few. The Weed Chamber of Commerce would like to thank all the homes and families who participated in the Light up Weed Christmas Lights Contest!
