PIMA — Due to the increasing number of COVID-19 cases in Graham County, the Town of Pima was forced to cancel its annual Christmas event in Heritage Park.
But that doesn’t mean the town is not celebrating the holiday.
Town officials announced Tuesday An Old-Fashioned Home Town Christmas, which is comprised of two new events designed to maintain physical distancing while celebrating the yuletide: a home decorating contest and a light parade.
The home lighting contest offers three prizes. First place will win December’s entire utility bill paid by the town, second is half the utility bill paid and third is a turkey and a ham. Judging will be conducted by officials from Graham County Chamber of Commerce.
The light parade will see prizes award in three categories: best use of lights, best use of theme and most creative.
There is no fee to enter either contest; however, entrants in the light parade must register by Dec. 14.
The light parade will take place Friday, Dec. 18, at 7 p.m.
