WOW!... That's the feeling of the members of the Board of Directors as they toured the neighborhood tonight to determine the winners of the association's annual holiday decorating contest. New board members were impressed by the quality of the light displays, veteran members were impressed by the number of additional folks that decorated their homes and lit up the cold night.
This year the board was able to offer cash prizes due to a grant we received from Bernalillo County to increase participation in the association and its activities. We should have budgeted more cash, as we had to divide the $150.00 FIVE WAYS.  Even then there were a number of other homes that also were in the running. It was a hard decision trying to narrow the field to even just 5. So here are your winners:
7001 Montano (lots of lights, and the "bug" is lit too!
7208 Montano (check out the christmas tree on the roof!)
7320 Bangor (a shooting star, lots of trees, the grinch and the abominable snowman, are just some of the features of this site)
6904 Sweetbriar (check out the reindeer using a pickup truck to transport the sleigh)
5309 Tameriz (live luminaries, manger, cross and the star in the sky)

The first four are previous winners, but the home on Tameriz is a first time winner with it's religious theme. The owner told us he makes his own materials. Each home won $30 dollars in cash.
Thanks to all who decorated. We saw a lot of homes that have decorated for the first time, and a lot more homes in general helped to light up the night.  

Check out the pictures below, or better yet, go check em out in person over the next few nights.

Happy Holidays to all!
