The village introduces a safe community activity during the pandemic

Bourbonnais, IL – Get ready to deck your halls this season! The Village of Bourbonnais presents “A Holly Jolly Holiday Lighting Contest” sponsored by Brandon Casey’s Comfort Crew and ComEd. The new event for village residents encourages outdoor festive lighting and decorations. Participants will have a chance to win in traditional, themed and people’s choice categories.  An online map of all entry addresses will be available for community viewing December 4th through the 25th. The contest is free to participate, but preregistration is required by Monday, November 30th at 4:30 pm.

“After postponing the Chocolate Tour due to COVID-19, we wanted to offer an alternative and safe event for individuals and families to enjoy this winter,” stated Mayor Paul Schore. “Whether you want to dress up your home for the holidays or simply drive around viewing the lights, this gives our community a positive and safe experience this season.”

Official judging will take place in the traditional and themed categories. People’s Choice voting will take place via the Village of Bourbonnais’ Facebook page December 4th through December 13th. All winners will be announced on the village’s Facebook page. 1st place will receive a $100 Visa gift card, 2nd place a $50 Visa gift card and 3rd place a $25 Visa gift card.

“We want to spread a little holiday cheer throughout the village,” explained Lindy Casey, Marketing & Public Engagement Manager. “This year has been a challenging one. We hope this holiday event will put some smiles on people’s faces and some money in the winners’ pockets. Thank you to our sponsors for providing the prizes.”
