Ketchikan’s annual holiday lights contest will take place next week, continuing a tradition that started in 2003.

According to Ed Zastrow of the Ketchikan AARP, judging will take place Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, so people who want to participate should be sure to turn on their lights those nights.

Categories include most colorful, best design, best public display, largest display, best use of lights, best commercial display and best religious display.

AARP hosts the contest, and the local International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers provides funds for prizes.

Winners will be announced Thursday morning.
