The Community Services District would like to send out a very special THANK YOU to all of this year’s dedicated participants in the City of Murrieta’s 2016 Holiday Home Decorating Contest! Once again, Santa and his elves asked for a little help and requested that the public weigh in on rating the best and the brightest that the season has to offer.
There were six categories for which the entries were eligible: Best Block, Holiday Spirit, Best Use of Lights, Most Festive, Most Creative, and Best Overall. Online voting took place from December 8 through December 15. The City received a total of 333 responses for all the categories combined. The winners of each category and the honorable mentions are listed below. Each family will receive a special recognition yard sign as well as mention on the City's website.
