Hillsboro, ND — The Hillsboro Business Association has had to get creative this holiday season to spice up some spirit and cheer during the holiday season. The HBA was unable to host their annual Winter Carnival this year due to safety concerns from the COVID-19 pandemic, however they have established a trio of fun and festive competitions that the community can participate in, all of which will take place over the next few weeks. The first of which is a Tree Decorating Contest at Railroad Park, according to HBA President JR Strom.

Another event that families have the opportunity to compete in is a Snowman Contest, which Strom says will require a great deal of creativity given our current weather.

And last, but not least, any Hillsboro homeowner can also enter the Holiday Light Display Contest as well.

The prizes are the same for all three contests. First place gets $200, second gets $100, and third earns $50, all paid out in Hillsboro Bucks. It is possible to place in all three contests, meaning the maximum you could win is $600 in Hillsboro Bucks if you pull off the Hillsboro Holiday Contest Hat Trick.

The rules and registration info for each event is posted in the “Experience Hillsboro ND” Facebook page, but Strom notes that they purposely left the rules rather vague to encourage creativity.
