Only the outside of the houses will be judged. The decorators need to be finished by December 16th. Judging will be done on Sunday, December 17th at night so make sure all of your lights are one! Please let your neighbors know about the competition, as some people may not receive our emails. If you see an amazing house please let us know the street. Send email to . We do not want to miss any of the houses when we are judging. Our Grandest prize winner will receive $100. The two Greatest prize winners will each receive $50.

Rats!!! And Wildlife

The Knolls is home to many different kinds of wildlife including peacocks, raccoons, skunks, fox, bobcats, and more. While we all love to see the wildlife, it is against County regulations to feed the wildlife. Feeding these beautiful critters results in unwelcome consequences, a couple of them being more rats and snakes in the neighborhood! The rats eat the leftover food and the snakes eat the rats. So, please enjoy looking at any wildlife that passes your way, but refrain from feeding them. They have managed to feed themselves all these years so will certainly survive! For more information on controlling rats download this info sheet from the Ventura County Resources mandement website. To read a Knolls neighbor's experience with rats and rattlers click here.
