Whether your holiday decorating finds inspiration in Clark Griswold, or your style leans more toward the tasteful and traditional, Ocean Pines once again invites you to show off your skills in the annual “Light up the Pines” outdoor display event.
This year, the program will focus on participation rather than on the selection of winners, as has been done in the past.
Choptank Electric Cooperative, the sponsor of this year’s program, will be giving away holiday gift baskets to the first 20 households that register beginning Monday, Nov. 18.
“Choptank Electric Cooperative is pleased to be part of the holiday spirit in Ocean Pines with the ‘Light Up the Pines’ event,” said Beth Hallett, manager of marketing and communications. “We hope our members enjoy bringing holiday fun to the neighborhood!”
Those interested in sharing their displays with the rest of the community are invited to join the “Ocean Pines Holiday Parade of Homes,” which will feature an online Google map with addresses (and names, if the homeowners wish to share them) of participants.
Households interested in participating should submit a name, address and phone number via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 410-641-7717.
The initial deadline to register is Friday, Dec. 6, although those who decide to participate after that date may still have their homes included on the online map, which will be updated throughout the holiday season.
