FAIRVIEW— Unlike other cities in Sanpete County that sponsor light parades, Fairview City has been holding a house lighting contest for the past 15 years.
Citizens participate by putting up Christmas lights on their houses by Dec. 1. A panel of judges has two weeks to select three winners, who receive credits on their power bill. First place receives a $100 credit, $50 is awarded for second and a $25 credit is given for third place.
“We just appreciate everybody who lights their houses. It brings a better spirit and joy to the community,” Mayor Cliff Wheeler said. “I think every community feels the same.”
