Countywide holiday home decorating contest underway

The season of lights may be exceptionally bright for some local folks this year when Miss Colusa County Hannah Azevedo, and Mini Miss Colusa County Alexis Avera host a countywide Christmas Light Contest.

“I enjoy this time of year, and even more with all the beautiful Christmas lights and decorations around our county,” said Azevedo.

The duo is inviting any Colusa County resident to participate.

“We would like to make a county map with all the entries and streets filled with the holiday spirit for those who may want to take a drive and enjoy the lights,” said Avera.

To participate, residents can contact Miss Colusa County at (530) 923-8733 or Mini Miss Colusa County at (530) 218-5576 for details and application. Applications can also be picked up and dropped off at the Pioneer Review newsroom located at 611 Bridge Street in Colusa. All entries must be received no later than 5 PM on Sunday, Dec. 17.

While the community will enjoy the tour of lights, Miss Colusa County and Mini Miss Colusa County will judge each entry to receive bragging rights for ‘Best of Show’ and ‘Most Unique.’ The winners will also receive a Christmas basket.

“I wanted to do something fun and memorable during the holiday season as Miss Colusa County,” said Azevedo. “I see a lot homes with Christmas décor and thought the event would bring a little holiday cheer.” ■
