PGC holiday lightning contest set

Staff reports

Plaquemine Garden Club will hold its annual Christmas Lighting Contest Sunday, Dec. 12.

Iberville Chamber of Commerce will co-sponsor the contest with the PGC.

The city’s private home outdoor Christmas lights/displays will be judged from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Those wanting to participate must have their lights on during that time period. More on the contest will come in next week’s POST SOUTH.

Co-chairing this year’s event are Liz Rivet and Patsy Williams.

Awards will include first, second, and third place honors along with a special award for Best Decorated Doorway. These awards will be given in recognition of creativity, originality, and overall best Christmas theme.

A committee of judges from the PGC and ICC will conduct the contest.
