The annual Christmas Lights Contest winners have been announced.
Ed Zastrow of the local AARP drove a small group of judges all over the island on Tuesday and Wednesday this week. Linda Randall and Biz Robbins were his fellow judges.
On Thursday, Zastrow brought in the list of winners.
According to that list, outside of city limits, winners are the Ken Hook residence on North Point Higgins for most colorful; the MJ Cadle residence on Forest Park for best religious display; James and Phaedra Painter on Forest Park for best design; Sheri Monta on Mattle Road won people’s choice; and Totem Bight State Park had the best volunteer display.
Best neighborhood displays outside of city limits are Forest Park Drive and Fawn Mountain Road.
Inside of city limits, the Carlanna area was the brightest part of the city. The John and Linda Gilson residence on Fairview won for largest display, complete with music. Nearby, the Brian and Sandi Gilson residence on Alaska Avenue won for best youth display.
Best neighborhood lighting inside city limits went to upper Canyon Road and Tower Road.
