Seeking nominees for Grover Beach's Holiday of Lights contest

The Grover Beach Parks and Recreation Department is seeking nominations for its 2013 Holiday of Lights Decorating Contest.

Competitors will be sorted into four categories: the City Council Award for best original use of animation and craftsmanship; the Commissioner’s Award for best use of lights; the Business Award for best overall business display; and the Mayor’s Award for best overall in originality.

The Parks, Recreation and Beautification Commission will view properties Dec. 7-8 from 5:30 to 9 p.m. to decide its own nominations, so any business owners or residents who wish to be considered should have their displays lighted at that time.

Interested parties can also self-nominate by calling the Grover Beach Recreation Department at 473-4580 before 5 p.m. Dec. 11.

The commission will review all nominations for final judging Dec. 19, and winners will be announced Dec. 21. Winners will be invited to attend a Grover Beach City Council meeting in January to accept their award.
