For several decades the Historic Ocala Preservation Society (HOPS) has conducted a holiday decorating contest within its historic districts. On December 8th, area residents were encouraged to light up their houses. Board member, Lela Kerley hosted independant judges who toured the historic neighborhoods in search of holiday decorating cheer. HOPS congratulates all the winners, and thanks to all those who participated. Take a drive through each neighborhood and enjoy the decorations!
In order to see this years Best of Tour home one must be adventurous. Wander down 3rd Street on the other side of the pond off 11th Avenue. The home sits on a dead-end street but well worth the trip!
