"Candy Cane Lane" delighted Great Falls residents on Friday and Saturday with Christmas and holiday displays in the Skyline neighborhood.
The Great Falls Day Care Association hosted the event. The GFDCA was established 40 years ago and provides training and support to daycare providers and organizations.
"Candy Cane Lane brings families together in our community. That is what the Daycare Association is about, too, serving families in the community and the children. With these two organizations coming together is huge. Really we are just wanting to better our community," said Anna Kraus, president of the Great Falls Daycare Association.
People were encouraged to vote for their favorite homes.
On Sunday evening, they announced the winners, who will each received a special ornament:
1st place: 762 33B ave NE
2nd place: 3310 3A St NE
3rd place: 4713 7th Ave N
Event organizers said in the Facebook post:
