You voted and this house was the top local vote-getter in our Deck the House contest.
Who has the best “decked” house in St. Michael and Albertville? According to users who voted in our annual Deck the House contest, Kelly Duncan's Albertville home has the best holiday lights in town. Duncan submitted a photo of her house to Patch's Deck the House contest in early December. Congratulations to the Duncan household, with holiday spirit both inside and outside their house!

There’s decisions for shoes and music mixes, and even discussion about who to maybe play a bit of a practical joke on this weekend. The phrase used around the Miss Albertville camp is "Sparkle Time." At the end of this week, however, that will come to a happy ending. “To get to know the girls and the women that are involved in Albertville Royalty as much as you do, it’s like a second family,” said Brittney Heinen, Albertville Princess and last year’s Miss Congeniality. “We’ve all built this relationship.
