HOME & BUSINESS DECORATING CONTEST

Solomon's homes and businesses traditionally decorate for the holiday season, transforming Solomon's into a magical winter wonderland for the month of December. The Solomon's Business Association encourages this decor, and awards a prize to the "Best Dressed" home and business. Criteria include the use of lights, general appearance, personal appeal, creativity, and correlation to business. Businesses need not be SBA members to win, but must be participants in the Christmas Walk. Judging is conducted on Wednesday, December 3rd, just in time for Christmas Walk!
