Ladera Neighborhood Decorating Contest Entries and Map

We told you about two Ladera Ranch streets that pulled out all the stops in their holiday decorations.  Entries have been collected and a total of eight Ladera Ranch streets are competing for the honor of being named the best decorated neighborhood.  We’ve seen Bramford (Sarasota 1) and Merriweather (Canopy Lane 2) and they are impressive.  We look forward to seeing the other entrants this weekend.  And a jolly congratulations to all the participants — it is through your efforts that Ladera Ranch is such a great place to live and raise a family.  Happy holidays!

A map of all the entrants is below the jump.
