A panel of nine judges annually selects the properties whose decorations, in their collective opinion, represent the best of Lake Placid. Judges are volunteer representatives from the The Lake Placid Business Association, The Lake Placid Beautification Association and the Lake Placid Garden Club, as well as the community at large. The committee is supported by staff from the Lake Placid CVB, which provides funding for the annual awards.

This year’s awards were presented to the winners at the Holiday Village Stroll Christmas Tree Lighting celebration in Mid’s Park Saturday, Dec. 8.
