State Fair Christmas Superstore hosts first ever outdoor decorating competition on Facebook
If you think your outdoor holiday display is better than the windows at Macy’s or the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree, then this is your time to shine. Starting now through Dec. 15, State Fair Christmas Superstore in Belleville will sponsor the first ever New Jersey Outdoor Decorating Competition. Bring out the sleighs, lights and blow up characters.
To enter the competition, upload a picture of your home along with your first name and town to State Fair’s Facebook page, www.facebook.com/SFsuperstore . A winner will then be chosen for each of the following categories:
1. Clark Griswold Christmas – Going overboard is part of the fun
2. Martha Stewart-like Christmas – Tastefully elegant
3. Christmas Joy – Full of spirit and wonder
“After a Fall season of storms, power outages and a struggling economy, we are hoping to cheer up communities around North Jersey with some joy and celebration,” says Michele Tartaglione, managing director of State Fair. “Many home owners take great pride in their lights and outdoor decorations, and those of their neighbors and friends. Here’s a chance to showcase their most creative displays.”
Winners will be chosen Thursday, Dec. 15 by an expert panel of judges, including Anthony Giordano of Lodi-based Scarepro Productions, a special effects consultant specializing in movies, TV and the music industry; Lisa Palombo, an American Impressionist Fine Artist based in Caldwell, NJ; and a surprise judge from local media.
Winners in each category will win a $50 gift certificate for the store that can be used for last-minute holiday gifts, or at the State Fair Sunny Living Superstore or State Fair Halloween Superstore.
