Across Dearborn homes are bedecked with stunning lights and their yards sprinkled with Santas, elves, candy canes and more, and as usual, the City is recognizing some of the most outstanding of those holiday displays.
For the annual Dearborn Aglow event on Dec. 9 to 11, volunteers with the City Beautiful Commission combed the city to select up to festive three homes to recognize from each of the city‘s 17 districts.
Homeowners who receive recognition will be honored by the commission and Mayor John B. O’Reilly, Jr. at a ceremony scheduled for January 24. For now, their hard work and holiday cheer is on display for all to enjoy.
