And the first place winner is… a tie between So..fea and Armour One! Honorable Mention goes to Ocean’s Rising. US Coast Guard Seaman Apprentices Robbie Kelly and Noah Haslitt joined Interim Manager Dina McClure as judges. So…fea’s light display with a water feature was outstanding. Len Christensen, from Armour One, made the decision a draw when he dressed up as a “lit up Santa” on top of his lit up vessel. Congratulations to all for making the Port of Siuslaw marina festive!
