WESTFIELD – Lights, Santa, Action!
Westfield on Weekends’ is hosting a DecemberFest drive-thru Holiday Light Challenge that will get residents in the mood to light up their homes.
WOW’s annual Holiday House Tour – where visitors walk-through decorated homes – cannot happen this year because of the ongoing pandemic. The Holiday Light Challenge comes on the heels of WOW’s successful PumpkinFest Haunted House Tour and is a way for residents to enjoy holiday decorations while socially distanced.
“Knowing that the online map for the Scarecrow Trail and Haunted Houses tour was viewed by more than 23,000 people, we felt it made perfect sense to follow the same format for DecemberFest,” said Jason Polan, WOW event director. “Each decorated home will be denoted on an interactive map on the WOW website (westfieldonweekends.com.) that can be followed by families who wish to make the tour.”
Registration for the challenge is easy.
“Folks are asked send a message with their names, addresses and photos of their displays to WOW’s Facebook page,” Polan said. “A $15 entry fee to support the prize giveaway can be forwarded by texting ‘GIVE’ to 833-500-9560.”
The “challenge” portion of the tour is to earn the most “likes” for a house. Photos of homes will be posted to WOW’s Facebook page and the house with the most “likes” will be declared the winner of the Challenge.
The Challenge runs Dec. 5-Jan. 2 and winners will be announced at the end of the Holiday Light Challenge.
