Apartment Complex Decorates for Christmas

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash.-- With so many houses being decorated for Christmas, now apartment owners are stepping up to the plate.

Riverpointe Apartments in Richland encouraged residents to decorate with lights and music and made a contest out of it. The winning apartment owner got over $150 off their rent.

One resident says it's just nice to get in the Christmas spirit.

"Apartments can be decorated just as well as a house can and it makes it nice," said Mario Miranda, a resident at the apartment complex. "Unfortunately we didn't win this year, a guy beat us out, but we're going to definitely win next year," he said.

This is the second year in a row the complex has done this contest. Residents say they enjoy decorating to light up the neighborhood, and invite anyone who wants to come by to take a look.
