Holiday House Decorating Contest

Starting today through Friday, December 3, we will be accepting registration for the Holiday House Decorating Contest. Families are encouraged to get in the holiday spirit by getting creative and showcasing their holiday style. If your neighbors have decorated their home, please encourage them to register as well! Registration is $10.00 per household or business in town. After registering and decorating your home, make sure to send a picture and the street address to Hadeel Majdoub, Recreation Supervisor, at The picture will be posted on the Newington Parks and Recreation Facebook page along with the address, so not only will residents be able to vote for their favorite decorated home and/or business, but you will also be able to drive by and safely see them for yourselves! The prize for the household category is a $100.00 gift certificate to the Newington Parks and Recreation Department which can be used towards any of the hundreds of programs and camps offered through the Department. The business category winner will receive a quarter page ad, valued at $500.00, in our upcoming seasonal program guide which is sent to over 13,000 households! This is just the beginning of what the Newington Parks and Recreation has in store for this holiday season! Voting for the contest will end on Sunday, December 20, at 11:59 PM, so make sure to visit the Newington Parks and Recreation Facebook page and “Like” your favorite decorations before then! Winners will be announced the following day, on Monday, December 21, so make sure to visit our Facebook page to see who the winner is!
