Clark Griswold Beware! Snoqualmie Launches Holiday Lights Contest

Have a neighbor who always goes above and beyond when it comes to their holiday light display?  Every December there are  holiday homes for which all of the “decorating challenged” (myself included) strive to measure up to.  Now there’s an award waiting for those amazingly decorated local homes.
