?Craig Holiday Tour of Lights interactive map shows top Christmas displays in contest
Craig Press and Yampa Valley Electric Association host the 2018 Holiday Tour of Lights featuring homes across Craig.
The yearly exhibition of Christmas cheer throughout the town includes nine local displays at houses and yards, ranging from hanging lights in tree branches, bulbs strung along buildings, inflatable decorations and in some instances, broadcast music through radio signals.
An online map of the contest entries features preview photos and a brief description of each home. From west to east, the driving route is roughly 6.6 miles and takes at least 20 minutes depending on the length of each stop.
First place went to the Bird house, second to the Joneses and third to the Brown home.
“We hope you will take the time and do the tour to view the lights the entries worked so hard to put together. They are beautiful,” Craig Press Publisher Renee Campbell said. “We would love to have you add your home for next year. Happy holidays to everyone!”
When in doubt, stick to the animal kingdom, blockbuster movies and children’s literature. The winners of the 20th annual Whittle the Wood Rendezvous were named Saturday evening to conclude the yearly festival that sees tree stumps become works of art in a matter of four days.
