Crystaland Lighting Contest

The dazzling lights are shining bright on Bolivar with the Chamber of Commerce sponsored Annual Residential and Commercial Christmas Lighting Contest, as part of the Crystaland Parade weekend.  The lights around town bring holiday cheer and festive greetings to all as the lights guide Santa to town. Only 15 days until Christmas…The judges deliberated and chose the winners for the season.
