TEHACHAPI, Calif. — The City of Tehachapi announced its Innagural Holiday Decorating Contest for both businesses and homes.

City staff will begin to decorate downtown for the holiday season with snowflakes on light poles and the Christmas tree at the Historic Depot in the next few weeks.

“It has been a year of upsets and unexpected events. The City of Tehachapi has decided to bring an event from years past to help celebrate the Christmas season. What a great idea to bring back this wonderful tradition,” said Tehachapi Mayor Susan Wiggins. “I can’t wait to drive around the city and enjoy all the holiday lights."

The judging will take place during the week of Dec. 14-16 and the winner announced on Dec. 17.

To enter the contest, register with the City of Tehachapi by emailing or calling Key Budge in Community Engagement.

The deadline to enter will be Dec. 14 at noon.
