The Beautification Committee is working on some really cool plans to deck South Milwaukee streets this holiday season. There is one I wanted to let you know about now, so you can prepare — our new holiday lights awards program.

It’s going to be called Light up South Milwaukee, and it’s simple: We are looking to honor the best holiday lights displays of South Milwaukee homes and businesses.

Winners receive small cash prizes, a yard sign and recognition on the city website and Facebook pages — and be the envy of your block, and city.

Beautification Committee members will judge entries in the following categories:

  • Griswold: You light up the whole neighborhood.
  • Classical: Traditional decorations from holidays past.
  • Themed: You have a running theme happening with your lighted display.

Start planning your display now … and look for more details soon on how to enter your or another property or three.

Or maybe get your whole block together for a display.

Happy holidays!

(And thanks to Brooklyn, Wis., for some of the details, even if they don’t know it.)
