Just about everyone has a home on his or her block that seems to have enough lighting for the entire neighborhood. That holiday cheer was rewarded at nine homes this year as more than 50 residents entered the City of Bayonne’s home decoration contest. Winners were selected for each of the First, Second, and Third Wards, with four judges traveling to contestants’ homes from December 19 to December 21, judging by curbside appeal. Judges did not enter the contest. Winners received gift cards to Lowe’s.
“The holiday home decorating contest is a great way to really enjoy the holiday season,” said Pete Amadeo, Supervisor of the Bayonne Division of Recreation, which held the contest. “Driving through Bayonne and seeing all the beautiful houses really gets you in the holiday spirit. It also is a great way to see the pride, joy, and dedication of the participants and all the holiday home decorators.”
Note: The third place winner in the Third Ward at 137 W. 57th Street is not photographed.
