The votes are in and winners of the Light Up Lovettsville decoration contest were announced last week.
Best in Show honors went to Christina and William Krogh and John and Connie Lickey won the Most Outrageous category. The Kroghs, who also took first for the Best Theme category, definitely set the measuring stick in town; they were the 2013 Best in Show winners, too.
This year’s six judges for the fourth annual contest had to think long and hard as they toured the streets looking for the best displays.
Councilwoman Kimberly Allar, who organized the contest with the cooperation with the town’s We’re In committee, said the contest was a lot of fun. “The judging wagon was packed full and the lights were beautiful,” she said.
Many residents came out to greet the judges with holiday cookies and the town government hopes the program will draw area residents to come downtown to view the lights and dine in local restaurants, Allar said.
