Get ready to string up the Christmas lights and break out the festive holiday lawn ornaments. It’s that time of year again when Bradyites get the chance to display their festive creativity by participating in the Brady/McCulloch County Chamber of Commerce sponsored lighting contest. “Young and old alike enjoy driving through Brady to admire the beautiful Christmas displays,” said Chamber executive vice president DeLaine Poe. This year participants may enter in one of three categories offered: business, residential and past residential winners. Cash prizes will be awarded to the first through third place winners in the residential and business categories. Only a first place cash prize will awarded in the residential past winners category. The Chamber will award $50 for all first place winners, $35 for second and $20 for third. For more information or to enter, contact the Chamber at 597-3491 by Monday, Dec. 17 at 5 p.m., and indicate any special requests when entering the contest. A list of all contest entries will be available at the Chamber office located at 101 East First Street and will also be published in the Brady Standard-Herald for all of those who would like to view the lighted homes. The winners of the lighting contest will be listed in the Brady Standard-Herald once selected by judges.
