The Town of Whitchurch-Stouffville is gearing up to bring the spirit of the season to our community.
The events team is asking residents and business owners to join them in a festive challenge that will unite our municipality in the common goal of decorating our town.
Trim the Town is a decorating contest that will be taking place throughout the month of December and is open to all residents and businesses in Whitchurch-Stouffville.
“We will be working with the Trentadue Torres Group, our Presenting Sponsor, to bring this offering to our community,” event coordinator Julia Troiani said. “The event provides an inclusive way to celebrate the season. Everyone can participate – whether they’re decorating or voting for their favourite, we’ll all be coming together to share in the fun.”
Criteria for entry is very simple: decorate your home or business, go to the event website, and submit the entry form (along with your photos).
Entries will be displayed in two categories: Residential and Business. There will be first, second and third place prizes awarded in each category. Winners will be determined by members of the public and the voting will take place through the town’s website. Residences and businesses must be located within the town boundaries to be eligible to receive votes.
Submissions will be accepted from November 19 to December 17 and voting will be open from December 20 until January 3. Winners will be announced in early January 2022.
In addition to viewing all entries on the website, families are encouraged to drive around and view all the décor. An interactive map will be on the town’s website indicating the location of the entries.
This map will be a great resource to those looking to go for Holiday Décor drives. Simply go to the website to view the map on the homepage and see where the location of all the decorated homes and businesses.
