Holiday lights on island homes and business’s will be in competition tonight (Dec. 16) for the Ocracoke Civic and Business Association-sponsored “Island Celebration.”
For this event, holiday-lighted homes and businesses will be judged in three categories–Best Theme, Most Traditional and Most Original.
Teresa O’Neal, who is a member of the OCBA, recruits some disinterested judges during the day (typically visitors). Then she and her husband Albert drive around at night with the guest judges, who choose the winners. Those with winning displays will know they have won after O’Neal places signs on their properties.
Below are a sampling of of some of the holiday decor on the island.
