This year’s Holiday Decorating Contest has a new look with numbered yard signs, an interactive map for ease of judging and community appreciation, and a new “Baldwin’s Favorite” award in addition to three prizes awarded by a team of judges at the Kiwanis-sponsored Holiday Festival on December 11th at the Baldwin Borough Building.
The Holiday Decorating Contest will begin December 6th and end on December 10th. Residents must register by December 2nd. Yard signs will be available for pick up at the Borough Building on December 1st.
