The 2017 Winter Lights competition lit up the night with bright lights and creative displays. The contest, put on by Pincher Creek Communities in Bloom, gave homeowners and businesses a chance to show their Christmas spirit.

The awards event took place at Kootenai Brown Pioneer Village on Dec. 13, with refreshments and hot apple cider.

Certificates and beautiful decorative wreaths donated by Perfect Posies Greenhouse were presented to the winners by Diane Burt Stuckey, director of community services, and Marie Everts, events, marketing and economic development officer.

Kathleen Hancock, one of the judges for the event, said it took them 3¼ hours and 50 kilometres to view every home and business in town.

“We didn’t miss anywhere and it was very difficult as some people made a lot of effort,” she said. “Everyone should be congratulated because the town looks beautiful.”
