The holiday spirit is wild in Overlea! The Overlea Community Association is sponsoring a Holiday Lights contest for businesses on Belair Road this year. The Rt. 1 business district is awash with colorful light displays, as business owners are pulling out all the stops to compete for a generous prize package this year, which includes a year of free advertising in the community newsletter, a cash prize, and a gift certificate to Carrabba’s Italian Grill Overlea. Visit the community and businesses to see the displays, including the lighting of the historic streetcar turnaround. Judging will take place on January 1st and the business with the most spirited display will be awarded the TOP LIGHTS OVERLEA designation. To register your Overlea business for the competition send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Many thanks to the Overlea Beautification Committee, and may the BEST business win!
