The city of Winchester is spon­sor­ing “A Festival of Lights” to spot­light some of the beau­ti­ful­ly dec­o­rat­ed homes, busi­ness­es, and church­es in the community.

Residents and busi­ness own­ers are encour­aged to dec­o­rate their loca­tion using any theme or col­or — use your imag­i­na­tion! Submit your fes­tive cre­ation by using the reg­is­tra­tion link below. Maps will be cre­at­ed locat­ing all of the entries so folks can tour the sites. 

Register here 

Site maps will be avail­able by Friday, December 3, and can be picked up at City Hall (32 Wall Street) or the Courthouse (34 South Main). Alternatively, you can print your own map from the City of Winchester Community Information Facebook page or the City of Winchester web­site after Dec. 3. Drive through the Christmas Festival route with your fam­i­ly any time between Saturday, December 5, and Christmas Day.
