COLUMBIA CITY â€” Officials announced the winners of Columbia Cityâ€™s lighting contest this week.
While participation in the contest was down this year, City Councilman and contest judge Dan Weigold said the city still has many decorated homes.
â€śThere were a few less participants this year,â€ť Weigold said. â€śI think itâ€™s due to a combination of things â€” a late Thanksgiving and poor weather. At the same time, there are still some very beautiful homes.â€ť
This yearâ€™s top home has been a winner in the past. Taking overall honors was Mike Christie, whoâ€™s decorations stood out from the rest.
