The WHLM PARADE OF LIGHTS TM will illuminate with classic cars, floats, boats, fire trucks and thousands of Christmas lights. This year's prizes are $1,000 for the best float with a $500 prize for second place, and $250 for third place. The best part is…there is no entry fee!
On top of all that, each of the first 30 entries will receive a $25 gift card from Kohl's Stony Hill Tree Farm and their massive Christmas shop.
