LAKE PLACID - The Lake Placid holiday decorating committee is pleased to announce the winners of this year's holiday decorating contest.
From Charlie Brown and Griswold Spirit to Classic Elegance, this year's competition included a number of new award categories for enthusiastic decorators, and the community certainly stepped up.
"I want to say a big thank you to the holiday decorating committee for all of the time they volunteered to view the homes and businesses," said Kathy Pfohl, director of community relations and events for the Lake Placid CVB. "We all appreciate the days and hours spent in the name of community spirit."
The decorating committee also extends an extra special thank you to the Town of North Elba and the Village of Lake Placid employees, and the Lake Placid Beautification Association for this year's exceptional municipal decorations.
