Celebrating its 51st year, the Old Town Walled Garden Club has released the details of this year’s holiday door decorating contest. The contest recognizes the most striking holiday door decorations in the Historic District. In keeping with Old Town’s historic provenance, contest rules require that — except for festive bows and ribbons — the door decorations should feature only natural materials and be made by the homeowners themselves. Professionally-made decorations are not eligible for the contest.
Judging criteria include originality of design, scale, color, contrast, and attractiveness from the street.
The first, second, and third place winners, as well as runners up, will be awarded prizes donated by local restaurants. Photographs of the winning doors will appear in the holiday issue of the Gazette Packet. Judging will take place between Dec. 10 and 16.
