Machias, Maine — The Machias Bay Area Chamber of Commerce is hosting a Fourth of July outdoor decorating contest. There will be two categories: commercial and residential and a $50 gift basket will be awarded to the winner in each category. There are no rules – go as grand or sophisticated as you choose – but your home or business must be located in the greater Machias Bay area.
There is no fee to enter but in order to be judged, businesses and homeowners must sign up at the Chamber office by calling 255.4402 or by emailing your name and directions to your building to firstname.lastname@example.org. Judging will take place the evening of July 3.
