The Great Kewaunee County Holiday Light Contest will not be returning this year due to turnover at the Algoma Chamber of Commerce. That organization has been instrumental in running the competition in the past. No other municipalities are able to fill the void, by design, according to Sturgeon Bay Visitor Center Promotions Director Carly Sarkis.
Sarkis says that if Kewaunee County is unable to bring back the Christmas light contest in the future, Door County and Sturgeon Bay may think about adding something similar to their calendars. Currently, Sturgeon Bay kicks off holiday celebrations in the area with Christmas by the Bay just before Thanksgiving.
