Westlake Rec holds winter outdoor display contest

Whether it is a lighted Christmas tree or a snow family, festive yard displays around the city brighten up the holidays for everyone. Unfortunately they will be gone in just a few short weeks. The Westlake Recreation Center intends to preserve some of those sights through its first Winter Display Contest.

"We know that some of our residents express their creativity and invest hours of labor in their displays which delight their families and children of all ages," said Bob DeMinico, director of the Westlake Recreation Department. "We want to specifically showcase family-friendly front yard displays that reflect the true meaning of the season."

The winning photo will be featured on next year's Winter Rec Gazette cover. The top 10 submissions selected by the staff will also be displayed at the center and posted on the city's website.

The contest is open to Westlake residents and is for residential properties only. They can enter by sending an email with a digital photo of their display plus their name and street address to recinfo@cityofwestlake.org. Deadline is Feb. 15, 2019. No registration is required.
