From 1992 to 1999, the VPA participated in the Winchester Mystery House Christmas Decoration Contest. As you can see from the list below, we did quite well at it. In fact, so well, that in 1996, the WMH folks created a professional category.
In 2000, the management of the Winchester Mystery House announced that they would no longer be holding the Christmas decorating contest. So we went out winners and now the VPA members can concentrate on decorating their own homes for the holidays.
