The Louisiana Chamber of Commerce and Community Betterment Committee are encouraging holiday decorating in and around the community by sponsoring a fun competition for businesses and residences. In coordination with the Annual Winter Wonderland Parade, being sponsored this year by the Chamber of Commerce the groups hope that everyone will join in the fun and thrill of lights and themed holiday décor for their storefronts, yards and homes. Judging will be held between November 29th and December 20th. Winners will be announced the week of December 23rd. Awards will be given in two categories for businesses and residences and awards will include local shopping coupons, prizes and a trophy (of sorts!)
“We hope that people will go ahead and decorate NOW so that on that Friday after Thanksgiving November 29nd all of the lights will come on in anticipation of the Winter Wonderland Parade downtown” a coordinator of the event commented. Parade participants this year are being asked to light up their floats. Street lights downtown will be dimmed during the parade for optimal impact.
