Kewaunee County has embraced the spirit of Christmas competition. More than five dozen families, businesses and nonprofits have registered their displays in the first Great Kewaunee County Holiday Lights Contest sponsored by the county’s chambers of commerce.

Seven families have gone full-out with entries in the “Best Griswold Themed” category, a nod to the ostentatious efforts of Clark Griswold in the movie National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.

The other categories are Best Residential Retro Themed, Best Residential Classic Themed, Best Business Retro Themed, Best Business Classic Themed, and Best Nonprofit.

The voting period is now open, and ballots can be cast online or on paper by dropping off a ballot at any Bank of Luxemburg branch. Voting runs through Saturday, Dec. 16.

Here is a link to maps of the various locations, including a link to the online ballot.
