KENTWOOD, MI – Do you have a holiday light display that would put Clark Griswold to shame? If so, the city of Kentwood has a contest right up your alley.
The city is hosting its second annual Holiday Light Display contest, allowing community members to show off their versions of a winter wonderland.
“After a successful inaugural year, we’re excited to host this friendly, festive competition again,” said Val Romeo, director of Kentwood Parks and Recreation. “This is a fun opportunity for our community to get into the holiday spirit and tap into their creative side.”
