There were many very nice light displays this year making the judging difficult.   The judges wanted to mention that Vern Kluver’s on Ridgeview Drive and Ricky Beveridge and Rick Noyes residences on East 3rd Street were very nice as well as many houses on East 2nd Street.  Although the contest was only open to residences and businesses in the city limits, the judges were impressed with the Scott and Tracy Ogdahl display on Highway 114 North.  The judges also liked Minnewaska Marine’s giant blowup display in the business category.

Thanks to everyone for helping to make the season festive.
