The Craft Connection and 1510 Crease Ave are the business and home with the most festive flair.

The Nelson Star asked people to nominate stores and homes with the best display in the annual Christmas Lightup Contest.

With Rosemont’s Crease Ave becoming something of a Candy Cane Lane it’s no wonder residents Fred Thomson and Barry Marsh won for their festive and fun decoration at 1510 Crease Ave.

A panel of judges selected the two who will be well fed as their reward with dinner for two at a local restaurant of their choice. Honorable mention goes to the North Shore home at 1785 Ridgewood Road.

The Craft Connection won for their window display featuring a skating reindeer balancing a stack of beautifully wrapped presents. Their prize is $500 of advertising in the Nelson Star.

Honorable mentions go to Vibe and the New Grand.

Also of note, the Christmas lights on Vernon Street are courtesy of Danny Rickaby. He purchased the lights decorating his block of Vernon with plans to keep adding to the seasonal spectacle.
