Yard of the Week - Holiday Lightsdave and nan

Thank you for Keeping Gastonia Beautiful and Bright!
What a pleasure it has been to see the pride one has in celebrating the season! From the lights with music to the many blow-ups and the houses that sparkle, we have been overwhelmed by all who decorated-even neighborhoods and certain streets as a whole were in the holiday spirit. We were excited to learn the stories behind those who decorated.  A special thanks goes to our judges, members of our Keep Gastonia Beautiful board of directors,  who had the hardest job making a selection, and our photographer Tom Hauer who did an awesome job capturing the spirit.
