Voting opens in Christmas lights contest

Love Christmas lights? You're in luck.

Voting is under way in the Home Holiday Decoration Contest and the Merchant Holiday Decoration Contest. The Henderson County Tourism Development Authority, the contest sponsor, invites the public to vote for the best in each category.

“These contests have become increasingly popular for both visitors and locals, and since people can explore and view the displays in their own time, it is a fun, potentially multi-evening activity for families and groups of all sizes,” said Amy Boswell, Asset and Event Development Coordinator. “In terms of why businesses may want to compete, this is an easy, free way to get additional exposure to their storefront, increasing their holiday sales.”

Voting is open through Dec. 16. Go here to vote.  Winners will be selected from each category and will receive prizes as well as bragging rights.
