Dresden Shines includes competitions

·1 min read

An extra touch of glitz and glam has been added to the Dresden Shines Christmas extravaganza.

An ‘A-DOOR-able’ door decorating competition has been launched and residents are invited to compete in four different categories.

Included are a children’s theme, best commercial doorway (any theme); nature’s bounty (using only natural greenery); and the Dresden Shine’s category, which will feature the best use of lights.

There is a $100 prize for the top entry in each category.

Judging for the event will take place Dec. 1st and 4th.

A second competition for the best decorated neighbourhood is also part of the holiday fun. It’s called the ‘Brighter Together Neighbourhood Cup.’

A minimum of four residences can be classified as a neighbourhood.

Entry deadline is Nov. 27. Judging will take place in the evenings from Dec. 1st to 3rd.

For full rules or how to enter, please access the Dresden Shines page on Facebook or contact McKellar’s Flowers.

An illumination tour and socially distanced activities are also being planned.
