As 2020 rolled to the end, the residents of the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community were still celebrating the holidays by decorating their houses and putting up lights and Christmas trees. The Salt River Events Program set out to create some holiday activities to take advantage of the fact that people are spending more time at home. Starting on December 7, Community members participated in the Family Christmas Tree Decorating Contest and the Family House Decorating Contest.
For the Christmas Tree contest, there were four categories for decoration: Traditional Christmas, Most Unique, Best Theme and Judges’ Choice. in each category, the first-prize winner could choose from a home projector, a $100 Walmart gift card or a $50 QuikTrip gas card.
The five categories for the Family House Decorating contest were Most Humorous, Most Festive, Most Spiritual, Best Theme and Best Use of Lights. The prize for first-place winners was a Ring doorbell camera system, a $100 Amazon gift card or a $50 QuikTrip gas card.
Lastly, for holiday entertainment there was Dangerously Fun Juggling with James Reid. The first 10 participants to send in a video of their best juggling won a $50 gift card.
Be ready for more fun in 2021 from Salt River Events!
