Kewaunee County residents and businesses will enjoy a little healthy holiday competition and light up their cities. Through a collaboration of the Kewaunee County chambers in Luxemburg, Algoma and Kewaunee, this fun, family-focused event is intended to encourage creativity and town pride. This year’s themes include “Retro” which can be inspired by 1920’s modern, 1960’s kitsch or 1940’s glam, “Classic” for those who prefer a more traditional approach and “Griswold” if you’ve got a cousin Eddy or a spare RV to decorate. Sara Krouse, Executive Director of the Algoma Area Chamber of Commerce, says that online registration is quick and easy.
Unlike other lighting contests that have a panel of judges, the Chambers are excited that new technology allows for the public to vote on entries which will open up on December 8th at 5 p.m. and goes through Saturday, December 16th at 10 p.m. For those not online mobily, maps will be available at area gas stations.
