The Aberdeen Chamber of Commerce’s Enhance Aberdeen Committee invites all Aberdeen businesses to participate in their annual holiday lighting & decorating contest.  Both inside and outside decorations will be considered, as long as the display is visible from the street. Now is the time to plan for decorating in October or November. Judging will take place on Wednesday, December 2nd – in a drive-by format – and the winner will be announced at the Chamber’s Community Christmas Celebration on December 10th.


The committee believes a project like this is especially important this year and encourages businesses to rally around creating a festive atmosphere in our community to give everyone some much-needed light at the end of this year.


This is the 6th year of the contest. Past winners include Northern Valley Cooperative, Malchow’s Home Furnishings, Calvary Chapel Community Church, Anthony Jewelers and Aberdeen Housing Authority. To submit a business for consideration, call the Chamber at 605-225-2860 or email
