Who won the contest? Just curious as we never saw anyone down by us or any pics posted of the houses out this way . This was a great idea to bring in the Christmas Spirit in our small mountain town! A suggestion to get more people to participate on a larger scale might be offering some incentives for participation. For example other places offer to pay a percentage of participants power bills.....another idea might be to get folks who participate gift/discount cards or something like that from local businesses....even a participant party or something. ...
