The Prairie City Business Association announced this week calls for entries in the fourth annual PCBA Christmas Lights Competition. Prairie City’s own Clark W. Griswolds will show off their Christmas decorating chops for the Dec. 9 contest.
Judging will take place after 5 p.m. The business group is again offering a bit of a financial incentive to get involved in the holiday decorating. Prizes will be awarded for first place in each of three categories — most fun, most elegant and best traditional display. Each winner will be given $100 PC Bucks which they will be able to spend at participating Prairie City businesses.
PCBA members will drive throughout the city to pick their three favorite illuminated holiday tributes Dec. 9.
The contest is aimed at residents within a mile of the Prairie City city limits. Homeowners and businesses are encouraged to put up lights, trees, wreaths or any holiday decor. Displays are not just limited to Christmas. Those who celebrate any year-end holiday tradition are welcome to participate.
