The Cassville Area Chamber of Commerce encourages all local residents and businesses to decorate their homes and store fronts for the holiday season. The chamber's annual Holiday Lighting Contest will be conducted Dec. 1 through Dec. 8.
On Saturday, Dec. 1, secret judges will begin touring Cassville neighborhoods looking for top-notch holiday décor and lighting. Residents and businesses interested in participating the contest must have their displays lit from dusk until 10 p.m.
This year's Holiday Lighting Contest winners will receive a sign to display in their yards. The winner of the commercial division will also receive a traveling trophy with their name on it, which can be displayed in their business for one year.
Residential prizes include: a $20 gift certificate to the BBQ Station, first place; a $15 gift certificate to Pizza Hut, second place; a $10 gift certificate to Papa Vito's, third place; and a free cupcake from Simply Sweet Shoppe, honorable mention.
