Woonsocket’s Densmores win Spirit of Christmas contest

WOONSOCKET – Charlene and David Densmore, of 604 Blackstone St. in Woonsocket, are the winners of the 2013 Valley Breeze “Spirit of Christmas” home decorating contest.

The Densmores, with their numerous handcrafted wooden holiday displays and lights set to music, easily won both the creativity and difficulty categories, also performing very well in the third and important “Christmas Spirit” category. The winners get a family four-pack to see “A Christmas Carol” at Trinity Repertory Company.

Taking second place overall was Phil Silva, of 7 Sneech Pond Road in Cumberland, with a giant lighted “Merry Christmas” and an impressive lighted manger display, complete with the star that guided the wise men.

Coming in third overall was John Wozniak, of 194 Farm St. in Blackstone, with an over-the-top front yard display of lights. Wozniak wins a family four-pack to “Disney on Ice: Passport to Adventure.”

Two honorable mentions go to Robert and Kristine Gregory, of 439 Rocky Hill Road in North Scituate, and Pat Lambrou, of 290 Little Pond County Road.
