Have you picked up your tree at the Westfield Y’s Men’s Christmas tree lot yet? We still have plenty of inventory. But not for long. Stop by this weekend and pick some holiday cheer for your Westfield home. (Say “hi” if you see me there. I promise to say “hi” back.)

Westfield Holiday Light Contest 2020
Does your family go all out with their holiday decorations each year? Let’s end 2020 on a high note by showing off your Westfield home’s best Christmas look. The contest is open for free to all residents. Simply visit the Westfield Recreation Department website to register. Registration closes at 11:59 pm on Wednesday, December 9th. Once you finish decorating, email a photo of your home to Lauren with the City of Westfield. Entries must be received by 4 pm on December 11th. You choose which category you wish to compete in.
The public decides the winner of this contest. Each Westfield home in the contest receives a yard sign that includes their category. Residents go online to vote for their favorites. Only one vote allowed in each category. Lights and animations must go live by dusk between December 12th and December 20th to allow for judging to take place. Winners will be announced on December 22nd. The winner in each category receives a $75 voucher to shop at one of our downtown businesses. Good luck!
