Winter Wonderland Contest



It’s that time again. The Winter Wonderland contest is open to all businesses in the City and are encouraged to participate.

First prize is an advertising package valued at $750.00 which includes $250 in advertising donated by the Vilas County News Review and a $500 live 2-hour broadcast donated by Heartland Communications (WRJO/WERL).

Second prize is $250.00 donated by River Valley Bank

Third prize is $100.00 in Eagle River Bucks sponsored by the Eagle River Main Street Program that can be spent at any Eagle River business.

Your display does not have to be that elaborate, remember, bigger isn’t necessarily better! We are looking for the most creative use of the space you have available. Your display must be a temporary, winter related display and include some form of lighting.
Judging will be based on the “most creative temporary winter display.” Judging will take place between December 26th and January 5th.

(1) The first prize winner will only be eligible for first place once every five years. This gives all businesses the opportunity to take advantage of the grand prize!
(2) A business that has won first place will still be eligible for second and third place the next four years.
(3) We encourage all businesses that are closed during the winter months, or if you are not planning on participating in the Winter Wonderland contest, to display lights on their building, in their windows or just keep some internal store lights on. How wonderful it will be for our residents and the winter visitor to experience a beautifully lit city, where all the stores and businesses are lit up in celebration of the season!
To sign up for this seasons contest, please contact Martha at errp@nnex.net or call 715-477-0645. And thank you to all who play a part in making Eagle River a Winter Wonderland.
