Back in the not so old days, the Hillsboro Argus used to promote the best Holiday home in the City! The bottom line was whoever had the best home was sent in to the editor and he would deploy the photographers out for a snapshot. The staff would vote over a few weeks and then announce who the best was! It was a matter of great civic pride to see who won! We remember and so do many of the people of Hillsboro.
So here we go gang- with a modern twist we want YOU to find your favorite homes or buildings and snap a shot and then post it below. Once you do make sure to add the address and then Vote for your favorites! The winners will get a $50 gift certificate to a LOCAL *business of their choice. Winners will be the top 3 vote-getters and/or the photographers who submit the photos. If the photographer owns or resides at the home/building there will be just one prize. Anyone can enter, all photos must be within Hillsboro, Oregon. Any disputes will be settled by the Herald Staff and our decisions are final!
Lastly, we are co-promoting this event with Mr. Alan Meeker of Hillsboro and the THOUSANDS of Fans at the Hillsboro Oregon Christmas Lights Facebook Page! Go check out the crazy wild action there and the maps they have created!
Let’s have some fun folks- post those picks and let’s see how much holiday fun we can create before the end of this 2020 GRINCH of a year! See rules additional rules below-
