OK, that’s an impossible request for Longboat Key.
But you can still paint the town red (and green), deck the halls and bring joy to the world with your holiday decorations for the Longboat Observer’s annual “Light Up the Keys” contest.

Categories include Publisher’s Choice, commercial, single-family homes and condominiums.
