The results are in for the Alberni Valley Chamber of Commerce’s Light Up the Night Christmas light display contest.

Judges spent three hours winding their way through the streets of Port Alberni last Thursday night, and after much deliberation they came to the conclusion that if there were more entries they would have had to judge over two or three evenings. There are so many homes with wonderful displays of lights.

As we had more than 30 places registered we have many “honourable mentions as well (please see list).

Uptown Port Alberni and the Quality Foods district have many great streets to wind your way around, particularly when you stop to listen and watch the music at 2415 Seventh Ave.

We travelled over to the Harbour Quay area where there were three business entries.

At Trends Design Team at 4663 Margaret St. the judges loved the boughs and lights enough they picked them as the third choice in Business Category. As they rounded the corner and stopped at Pescadores, judges decided this should be the No. 1 Business category winner.

As the judges made their way over to what’s known as Westport Place they found another array of nicely decorated homes.

This is where they found the second-place winner in the Residential category at 5445 Woodland Cres.

In the Echo area, Maitland Street is well lit up and definitely worth a mention.

We found ourselves driving out Beaver Creek Road stopping just before Stamp Falls.

There on the side of the road, in a yard was a plethora of lights and blow-up statues.

Apparently if one drives further out there is another well lit up residence.
