Let's light up Chestermere this holiday season! Do your neighbours call you Clark behind your back? Or do you prefer a clear theme and one colour of lights on your house? Is your inflatable snowman the biggest in a 10-block radius? Or, do you just enjoy bringing a smile to the face of those who drive by your house?
