Outdoor Residential Lighting Contest returns for Covered Bridge Christmas

PHILIPPI — The city of Philippi will once again be awash with twinkling lights and festive decorations for this year’s A Covered Bridge Christmas Residential Lighting Contest. The annual residential lighting contest will hand out cash prizes for 10 of the city’s residential displays chosen by an anonymous group of judges.

City residents from the AB baseball field to Broaddus Hospital, from the Diary King to the Mansfield schools, and all of Tygart Glenn are eligible for one of the $100 cash prizes. No Covered Bridge Christmas committee member is eligible for prizes.

Judging will take place from Dec. 1 -15 with winners being announced during the Dec. 19 Christmas Music Stroll. Anyone with questions is asked to contact Linda Menear at 304-457-3481 or 304-669-6933.
