Calling all Ugly Lamps for the Lit on Main Ugly Lamp Contest. Entries due by Nov. 28 to the Uptown Theater, 120 E. Main St., or Grand Prairie City Hall, 317 College St.

Maybe it was a Christmas present you received in 1987, or it was part of an inheritance from your Great Aunt Esther. Or, maybe you’ve decorated your own little piece of amazing that someone else may not view as beautiful. Whatever your laughable lighting accessory may be, the Uptown Theater wants it in their Ugly Lamp Contest. Just follow the rules below, complete an Entry Form, attach it to your lamp and drop it off as instructed below. Don’t worry; you’ll get your lamp back! Lamps will be on display in the window of the Uptown Theater during December and available for pickup after Jan. 2, 2013.
