Christmas Contest Winners

Wow!! What a fantastic year for lights. We had 13 entries but just driving around Fredericksburg looking at the entries made us realize how much holiday cheer people are expressing through the lights in their lawn!! If we would have had to judge all the beautiful lawns we saw the judging might have been extended for a day or two.

Although there are only three winners there were many interesting standouts. Several of the houses featured music selections – Be sure to roll down those windows to get the full affect– One house had the coolest disco light show against the house (we sure hope they turn that off at night or how do their kids sleep) – many of the houses featured moving characters/displays that you truly have to stop for a minute to appreciate the FULL display.

Other entries with beautiful lights were:

  • 208 Clyde Run
  • 606 W. Creek
  • 506 Kraupahen
  • 222 Metzger Road
  • 606 Goehmann Lane
  • 312 E. Travis
  • 507 N. Lincoln
  • 327 W. Mulberry
  • 332 W. Mulberry
  • 131 Beyer Road

All of us at Century 21 Sunset, Realtors thank everyone for their entries and taking the time to decorate their homes and yards. The delightful decorations add so much to the splendor of Christmas for the entire community’s enjoyment. We encourage everyone to enter again next year. Merry Christmas from our house to yours!
