December 28, 2020 – The Milford Cultural Council, MYFM, Milford TV, The Milford Chamber of Commerce, The Milford Downtown Revitalization Committee and Milford Permanent Firefighters Association Local 2140 have announced the winners of Milford’s very first outdoor holiday display contest Deck The House! The Lynch Family of 10 Vassar Rd. took Best Residential Display and Pepperoncini’s Bar and Grill took Best Business Display. Each was awarded an amazing assortment of gift cards to local area stores, businesses and experiences. Over 55 entries were submitted to the contest.
A scoring system was utilized to determine the winners using a panel of five local judges who viewed each entry and a public vote on Milford Town social media pages. Over 2800 votes were cast to the public vote. Contest sponsors were allowed to participate but were not eligible to win.
Milford TV produced and directed a feature airing on Milford TV (Comcast/channel 8, Verizon/channel 38 and streaming on milfordtv.net) documenting houses entered into the contest with interviews of the house owners.
“In a year darkened by the pandemic, the Milford Cultural Council is thrilled to have collaborated with so many residents, businesses, and local groups to bring light and joy to the community through our first-ever holiday lighting contest. We thank everyone for their contributions and look forward to continuing this wonderful new tradition,” said Cultural Council Chairperson, Geri Eddins.
