I hope everyone enjoyed some much-needed time off for the holidays!
The judges have spoken and it’s time to reveal the top 3 winners in the Ho Ho Home Decorating Contest. Here they are:
1st prize and the $100 Candian Tire Gift Card goes to: 26 Mountain Ash Drive.
2nd prize and the $50 Canadian Tire Gift Card goes to 874 Visiting Road.
3rd prize and the $25 Canadian Tire Gift Card goes to 42 Meadowglen Circle.
On behalf of the Old Town Kemptville BIA and Canadian Tire Kemptville, we want to wholeheartedly thank everyone who took the time and energy to create such memorable home Christmas displays. It was a very difficult task to choose the top 3 winners. People were clearly motivated to make this year a special one.
As well, judging by the number of people who checked out our google map of all of the displays, it was pretty obvious that many people enjoyed driving or walking around to see the many festive efforts. We received numerous social media mentions, messages and emails from residents saying how much they appreciated all of the decorating. People also remarked that it seemed like more houses, businesses and public spaces than ever were decorated for Christmas this year.
We want to extend a special thank you to our contest volunteers who helped organize the contest, create the map and then make the difficult decision of trying to choose the winners.
Of course, we can’t say enough about Frank and Canadian Tire Kemptville for making this contest possible through their generosity and support.
Take a bow everyone! Our community truly showed our resiliency and Christmas spirit this year! Best to all in 2021!
