The town’s events team has launched Trim the Town which is a new event that is being offered this year that will bring the spirit of the season to our community.
They are asking local 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 takes place throughout the month of December.
“Everyone can participate – whether they’re decorating or voting for their favourite pick, we’ll all be coming together to share in the fun,” said Julia Troiani, Acting Special Events Coordinator.
“We will be working with the Trentadue Torres Group, our Presenting Sponsor, to bring this offering to our community,” Troiani said. “The event provides an inclusive way to celebrate the season.”
Criteria for entry is very simple: decorate your home or business and submit your photo. Entry photos 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 event website. Residences and businesses must be located within the town boundaries to be eligible to receive votes.
Photo submissions will be accepted until December 11 at 5 p.m. Voting will be open by 9 a.m. on December 18 and run until January 1 at 5 p.m. Winners will be announced in early January. In addition to viewing all entries on the website, families are encouraged to drive around and view all the décor. A map will be provided on the event website indicating the locations of entries.
