Winning categories are “Best Overall Light Display” and “Best Overall Theme” as well as one winner from each City/RM chosen by local representatives. The dates December 19 – January 2 were chosen to correspond with the Holiday Break from schools.
Applications are to be submitted by December 15, 2020. An online form is available below. You can also print out a form and drop it off at Selkirk Home Hardware Building Centre, Harry’s Foods, and Sobeys Birds Hill. You may also pick up a form from those locations as well. Printable form can be found here.
In addition to the Holiday Display contest, in order to get community involvement there will be a Bingo Card game sheet that can be filled out and submitted for random draws as the holiday displays are toured. People are encouraged to participate in the People’s Choice and submit a vote for their favourite display which will also result in a winner. An online map will be available soon and your local area community website to identify where to find the displays in each community!
Partnership Among Communities
This event is important to us as it is the first time for a partnership including all these geographical areas. Our hope is to create a socially distanced activity for our communities as well as start a new traditional Red River North Holiday Yard display event. The success of this event will also depend upon the generosity of local businesses. Not only will this help benefit our event it is a unique advertisement opportunity for promoting local businesses
