Homes, businesses get recognition in Christmas Lighting Contest
The Holly Springs Main Street Chamber announces its annual Christmas Lighting Contest winners.
The contest judges are not residents of Holly Springs so there is no favoritism involved in the judging, according to Christy Owens, executive director of the Main Street Chamber.
Buford’s Furniture took first place again this year in Commercial Lighting. Regel & Company (formerly Jennie’s Flowers & Gifts) won second place, and The Bottomless Cup, a new business on the downtown square, came in third place.
Shirley Byers placed first in Best Door, followed by Robin Seale, second place, and Carole Jean Taylor, third place. Byers and Taylor are frequent winners in the Best Door Contest.
In Best House, John and Judy Forester (White Pillars) took first place, Barry and Diane Burk second place and Jimmy and Angel Holt (Hamilton Place) third.
Tom and Phoebe Stewart won first place for Best Yard. Larry and Nancy Hutchens came in second; and Rev. Fred Brown (on Randolph Street by Ida B. Wells Museum) took third place in the Best Yard category.
