There are several events that have been canceled this year around the region, including the annual Christmas Parade that the City of Riverbank usually hosts the Saturday after Thanksgiving. That event and many others are not being put on this year due to COVID-19. In an attempt to keep the Christmas spirit alive in the City of Action, however, the Recreation Department will be hosting a Holiday Home and Yard Decorating Contest.
The contest is free and open to Riverbank residents only. The first place prize is $200 cash and a yard sign, Second Place wins $100 cash and a yard sign, and Third Place will receive $50 cash and a yard sign.
The Decorating Contest will be judged on Tuesday, Dec. 15 with judges driving through neighborhoods between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m.
Registration will be accepted from Monday, Nov. 30 through Friday, Dec. 11 by 5 p.m.
To register, email your name, address, and telephone number to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 209-863-7150.
