Machesney Park hosts outdoor holiday contest

The Village of Machesney Park is again hosting its annual Outdoor Holiday Decorating Contest, where residents bring holiday spirit into their neighborhoods by decorating their homes.

To enter the contest, residents can call Machesney Park Village Hall, 877-5432, or fill out a contest entry form available at village hall or in the Post-Journal newspaper.

Village President Linda Vaughn says the annual outdoor decorating contest always brings creative entries and a competitive spirit among neighbors. “We often see that when people decorate their homes, their neighbors join in, and we sometimes see entire blocks of homes that light up with holiday spirit,” she said. “The contest is always exciting, and I’m looking forward to seeing what our residents come up with this year,” Vaughn added.

Nominations will be accepted through Friday, Dec. 12. The top three winners will be announced and awarded prizes at 7 p.m., Monday, Dec. 22, at a Village Board meeting.
