Turn your Christmas lights on this evening


Judging for the 2016 Christmas Lighting Awards Program takes place this evening starting at 6 p.m. A list of nominated properties can be viewed online at saultstemarie.ca/christmaslighting.

This program, co-sponsored by the City and PUC Services Inc., was created to acknowledge community pride and recognize the great effort many people put into holiday decorating.

There are two award categories – residential and business. In the Residential Category, two winners per ward will be selected. In the Business Category, three awards are presented citywide (1st, 2nd, and 3rd place).

The winning properties will be announced prior to Christmas. Award plaques will be presented to the winners at a City Council meeting in January.
