The Schaumburg Park District is on the lookout for the merriest and brightest house in Schaumburg.
Residents are invited to enter their homes in the Holiday House Decorating Contest by 9 p.m., Dec. 9 at the Community Recreation Center, 505 N. Springinsguth Road. Houses will be evaluated for originality, theme, arrangement and overall presentation. Participation is limited to the first 10 entrants.
“The Holiday House Decorating Contest is a great way to show off your holiday decorations,” said Kathleen Benson, Bock Center manager and general program supervisor. “This is such a fun way to get into the holiday spirit!”
Houses may be decorated any time before Dec. 12. The first 10 houses entered will be judged. Winners from the previous year are not eligible for the contest, but may enter their homes in the tour. Houses must be within the Schaumburg Park District’s boundaries.
Judging will take place during the Holiday House Decorating Contest Tour from 6-8:30 p.m., Dec. 12 and 13. Cost for the tour is $10 for residents and $15 for non-residents. Pre-registration for the tour is required by 9 p.m., Dec. 9 or until seats are full. Contest entrants are not eligible to judge, but may join the tour.
