AND THE WINNERS ARE . . .Announcing our LIGHT UP Council Grove & HOLIDAY BINGO Winners!

We had such a fabulously fun Christmas season in Council Grove this year! A lot of that fun came in the form of some contests that the Council Grove Area Trade & Tourism Association was proud to coordinate.


First, let’s talk about the LIGHT UP Council Grove!


Contestants entered their homes and businesses into a contest to be judged by our HOLIDAY LIGHT Trolley Tour participants, Council Grove Republican Readers, and a handful of self-guided tourists.


Drumroll, please . . .


FIRST Place, and a grand prize of $500 :

#18, The Anderson Family

SECOND Place, and a prize of $250 :

#13, The McEuen Family


THIRD Place, and a prize of $150 :

#16, The Jimmerson Family

(2nd year in a row!)


Congratulations to all of our participants! It was a tight race this year. We can’t wait to see if 2023 brings more challengers to the table!


Now for HOLIDAY BINGO!


This was a brand-new initiative, and we were thrilled with the reception. We estimate we handed out more than 1,000 HOLIDAY BINGO cards this year. Council Grove residents and visitors went around to participating businesses and collected more than 20 stickers per card. The feedback was exactly what we had hoped. People were going into shops, restaurants, and businesses that they had yet to venture into.


Drumroll, please . . .
