Light Up The Hill, a city-wide holiday decoration contest organized by the Kiwanis Club of Spring Hill and Thompson's Station, has had its registration deadline extended for those still interested in competing. Prizes for the competition have also been announced for first, second and third place winners.

While the registration period for the event was originally scheduled close on Monday, December 14, that deadline has been extended to Friday, Dec. 18.

Registration is $20, with all funds going towards providing AmTryke adaptive tricycles to children with physical challenges. Click here to register.

Once registered, participants must have their homes or businesses fully decorated by Dec. 18, with the Kiwanis Club taking votes from the public online on Dec. 19, 20 and 21. Those interested in voting can do so by clicking here.
