Choosing the Orcutt and Tanglewood area winners in the “Lights, Sights and Holiday Nights” contest was a tough task, according to one of the judges.

Theresa Aston of the Santa Maria Valley Lions Club said this year’s field of nominees was strong and picking from the best of the best was difficult.

“Some are above and beyond,” she said.

Orcutt and Tanglewood area winners of the best-decorated homes in the contest were announced Thursday.

Award categories also included Best Residence, Neighborhood/Community Spirit, Most Inspirational, Most Nostalgic, Best Block and Best Craftsmanship. Honors went to six major category winners and six honorable mention recipients.

Nominees were judged by five members of the Santa Maria Valley Lions Club on Wednesday night.

Aston said there weren’t as many candidates as in the past but that the ones entered were beautiful.

Winners include:
