The sixth annual Light Up Dodge City Holiday Lights Contest ended on Tuesday night, with judges selecting Jared Stevens, 1902 La Mesa as the first-place winner. The contest, hosted by the Dodge City Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB), the Dodge City Area Chamber of Commerce, and the Dodge City Daily Globe, is a popular holiday tradition that rewards homeowners for their creativity and originality in holiday decorations.
Second place was awarded to Carmen Starbuck, 2206 Crescent Dr. This year's competition featured impressive submissions that included lighted archways, glowing menageries, and traditional nativity scenes. The first-place winners received $200 in Chamber Bucks, valid at any Chamber business, and a sign declaring their home a Light Up Contest award winner. The second-place winners received $100 in Chamber Bucks.
“The holiday light contests have become a beloved tradition in Dodge City,” Megan Welsh, the director of the CVB. “They reward those homeowners who put in the extra effort with their holiday decorations.”
The Light Up Ford County Holiday Lights Contest is ongoing, with submissions being accepted through December 26. This contest is open to anyone who lives outside of the Dodge City city limits.
