WINDCREST -

A group of judges visited home after glowing home Tuesday night to pick winners among several categories for the city’s 55th annual Light Up event.

Every year residents’ elaborate light displays draw thousands of spectators throughout the holiday season.

Winners are chosen among several categories which include elegant creations, joyful, handcrafted, entryway/window, mailbox, block/cul de sac, creative lighting and religious.

A grand prize winner is chosen among the winners of each category.

On Saturday, the official kick-off ceremony of the Light Up happens from 6 to 9 p.m. at Windcrest City Hall. The event includes a 5k run, a visit from Santa Claus and a ‘winter wonderland.’

For a donation to benefit the city’s volunteer fire department, visitors can pick up a map of the winning homes outside Windcrest City Hall.

The city will be awash in light until New Year’s Eve.
