Get Ready, Crafters: Second Annual Mason Jar Holiday Decorating Contest Underway



Text Size

The second annual Newtown Parks and Recreation Mason Jar Holiday Decorating Contest is running through December 15.

All ages are invited to participate in creating a holiday-themed mason jar. There is a $5 fee to enter.

The 2021-22 Winter Brochure detailed, “Purchase or recycle a mason jar and decorate it with your favorite holiday theme — get creative! Your jar can be decorated inside or out.”

Assistant Director of Recreation Rose Ann Reggiano shared, “During COVID I had to come up with a holiday idea, for we did not have any holiday events last year. I thought it would be fun for family and/or friends to get creative and create a holiday themed mason jar [like a snow globe], so why not try it again this year.”

All mason jars must be dropped off at Newtown Community Center, 8 Simpson Street, by December 15. They will remain there on display for judging.

The winner of the contest will be announced on December 21 and receive a gift basket.

To sign up for the Mason Jar Holiday Decorating Contest (Activity Code: 214102 A), visit newtown-ct.gov/parks-recreation or call 203-270-4340 for more information.
