Holiday Door Decorating Contest

NEW JERSEY – The Clifton Board of Recreation held the judging of its Annual Holiday Door Decorating contest the week of December 6, 2015. The contest was created in the spirit of the season in hopes to get Clifton families to work together, spend quality time and achieve a common goal while exploring their creative and artistic talents. This year, there were about 15 participants in the contest. Each participant who had decorated received a goody bag on their doorknob, filled with candy, coupons and holiday novelties to thank them for their participation and to let them know that their door was judged. Winners were then selected based on 9 categories. (Photo: “Best In Show” door)
