If you haven’t already noticed signs with QR codes around Lakeland make sure you take an evening to view some of the wonderful light displays around town. One street in Oakwood Grove might as well be called Christmas Lane. The Lakeland Education Foundation has organized this event as a fundraiser but it brings with it many benefits including the competitive spirit of Christmas light decorating. Registration is still open! Over twenty businesses and homes are currently competing. Voting began on 11/20/22 and runs through 12/24/22.
LEF says to participate it’s simple: Individuals and businesses signup by following the link, we ask for a $25 donation to compete. Yard signs with a QR code for voting will start to be delivered to contestants the weekend of 11/19-20. Signs must be displayed for the entirety of the contest. Winners will be announced no later than 12/26/22. Satisfy your inner Clark Griswold and sign up today!
