Chamber of Commerce

The Magnolia-Columbia County Chamber of Commerce is hosting a Magnolia Square light pole decorating contest for the Christmas season.

Magnolia-Columbia County Chamber of Commerce members are encouraged to adopt one of the Magnolia Square’s light poles for the Christmas season.

The “Winter Wonderland Light Pole Decorating Contest” follows on last month’s inaugural decorating contest that turned the poles into scarecrows.

Decorations will be displayed on the poles from December 2-30.

The contest is free to enter. Prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. Winners will be judged on overall impression, most original and creative, and execution of theme.

Winners will be announced at the Southern Arkansas University Celebration of Lights on December 5.

The poles already have lights and garland on them, and they should be incorporated into the design as the lights and garland should not be removed.

The Magnolia-Columbia County Chamber of Commerce or the City of Magnolia are not responsible for items taken from or damaged on a pole.

Contact the chamber at 870-234-4352 to reserve a pole or email Bonnie Keith at for more details.
