Families in Monroe are participating in a friendly competition to light up the town and raise money for a local project.
The Monroe Playground Foundation has been working toward its $400,000 goal to build a new playground for families in the community.
Chair of the organization Dan Keene says the Christmas lights competition and fundraiser was their idea to help them reach it.
"This seemed like a great way to bring some cheer to Monroe and hopefully raise some awareness for our project," he says.
Over 40 families paid a $25 fee to be entered in the competition. Their homes are being judged by panel of volunteers and enjoyed by anyone who wants to drive by.
