We're ready to light up our streets and neighborhoods around eastern and central Maine brighter than ever this holiday season, and we need YOUR help.

Got lines and lines of lights lining the roof of your home? Towering trees with strands of lights and ornaments in the front window of your business? Those hard plastic candles and light-up Santa everyone's parents had in the '80s?

We want to see ALL of it.

And since it is the season of giving, we'll hand over a neatly wrapped gift of $250 to one lucky person and $250 to one lucky business who shares their holiday light display.

The Dec. 13 entry deadline has passed. We'll announce our winners later this week.

The brightest lights bring the brightest smiles. Let's work together to spread some holiday cheer this year.
