School’s out, the holiday season is officially here, and everyone in Columbia County is looking for things they can safely do together during the pandemic.

The Magnolia-Columbia County Chamber of Commerce Let It Glow Christmas House Decorating Contest and Tour of Lights fills the bill.

A total of 40 houses have been entered in the contest, vying for $1,000 in prizes. The general public may vote for their favorites through December 29.
