The sudden shift to unseasonably cold temperatures may have area residents rethinking their holiday decorating plans. Regardless, area residents are still encouraged to light up their homes and share some holiday spirit with their neighbors and friends, as once again, The Progress Review is partnering with La Porte City Utilities to sponsor the city’s annual Home Lighting Contest.
Homes placing in the top ten in the contest will receive a $20 credit on their utility bill, courtesy of La Porte City Utilities. To receive the utility credit, winning homes must receive utility service from La Porte City Utilities. Additionally, the top three homes will be awarded La Porte City Chamber Checks in the amounts of $75, $50 and $25, respectively.
In addition to the Home Lighting Contest, three La Porte City businesses will be recognized for their lighting displays, along with the winners of the 2014 Holiday Home Lighting Contest, which will be announced in the December 24, 2014 edition of The Progress Review.
The judging of the lighting contest will take place December 12-14 between 5 PM and 7 PM. Area residents who wish to participate in the contest are encouraged to leave their holiday lights on during that time.
