The New Sarepta and Area Winter Lights Competition is once again encouraging people to add a little twinkling festivity to their homes.

“Definitely the bigger the better,” she added.

Gill says many people also put a lot of attention into decorating the insides of their homes and those who wish can register to have judges arrange an inside visit.

Those wanting to partake need to be registered by Dec. 7 and judging takes place from Dec. 18, 6 to 8:30 p.m.

The winning houses are announced Dec. 21; within the competition the top three houses within New Sarepta and another top three from the rural surrounding area.

All participants are also entered for a draw grand prize draw. Gill says in the past the prize has been something similar to a Canadian Tire or Home Depot. “That way they can go out and get more for next year,” she explained with a laugh.

The contest has run for the last five to seven years and Gill says if first began with just a few people. “It’s growing It seems to be growing every year.”
