The Redneck Christmas Tree Contest is making a return for 2021. Started last year as an activity to take the place of events cancelled due to the pandemic, the contest proved so popular that the Warrens Lions Club offered to sponsor the contest again this year.
Rules for the Redneck Christmas Tree Contest are few. Entries are to be two-dimensional so that they can be fastened to the fence around the Warrens Softball Field. The “trees” are to be made out of repurposed items. No real or artificial Christmas trees may be used. And, finally, trees are to be decorated with a family friendly theme.
Like last year, there are three divisions: Commercial/Business, Clubs/Organizations and Family/Individual. Here are this year’s participants:
- CCF Bank
- Cranberry Country Cafe
- Meadow Valley Log Homes
- Moseley Roadside Market
- Paul’s Machine & Tool
- Three Bears Resort
Clubs/Organizations – Adult
- Town of Lincoln Fire Department
- Warrens Lions Club
- Warrens VFW Post No. 5387
