Santa and his elves are starting to gear up for the Holiday Decoration Awards. As the excitement of the season kicks in, haul out your decorations, string your lights, and spread holiday cheer. Judged by the Arcadia Beautiful Commission, this annual event recognizes properties decorated in the most festive and creative ways. Get ready to deck the halls and illuminate the community with holiday spirit! “The Holiday Decoration Awards are a wonderful tradition we all look forward to every year. This contest allows the community to come together and admire all the festive decorations throughout our City,” said Burton Brink, Chairperson for the Arcadia Beautiful Commission. To be considered for an award, please have your decorations up by Saturday, December 3. Once your home or business is decorated, leave your lights on until 10 p.m. for nomination and judging purposes. To nominate a property for consideration (self-nominations are welcome), please call the City Manager’s Office at (626) 574-5434 or email jbrutus@ArcadiaCA.gov by Wednesday, December 7. Please include the complete address including the street, avenue, etc. Both residential and commercial properties are eligible to win.
