The Recreation Department is excited to announce two Holiday Contests that have been revived and revamped for the upcoming season.  COVID-19 has taken away a lot this year... but it can't take away our holiday spirit!

1. The Holiday House Decorating Contest invites residents of East Pennsboro Township to enter to win Best Entryway, Most Traditional, Best Use of Inflatables & Animation, and Wow-Factor Awards. Families MUST REGISTER in order to be eligible for the contest. Enter your decorated house into the competition online or by calling 717-732-0711, option 3. Registration is open now, until December 4th. Judging will take place during the week of December 7th. For more information and questions, contact the Recreation Department.

2. The children's Gingerbread House Contest is back this year, only with a slight virtual variation. Students of East Pennsboro Township (Pre-K through 5th Grade) can create their own gingerbread house using leftover Halloween candy, stickers, decorations, etc. Contest entry forms and rules are available HERE. Pictures of these works of art will be on display on the East Pennsboro Township Parks & Recreation Facebook page from December 14th - 18th. Facebook users can then vote (Like) their favorites! Winners will be announced on Monday, December 21st.
