The town of Hamlet is holding an outdoor Christmas decoration contest on Saturday, Dec. 21 from 6:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. CT.
During that time, residents with outdoor Christmas displays are urged to light those displays to be part of the contest. Clerk-Treasurer Kristina Pitts told WKVI that residents don’t need to register for the contest; you just need to make sure your outdoor display is in working order during the time of the judging.
The officials will give the address to the clerk-treasurer and she will send a check to the residences for the top three displays. The winner will receive $100, second place will get $75 and third place gets $50.
