Holiday Lights  Contest

Holiday Lights Contest Banner

The 2nd Annual Holiday Lights Contest runs from December 4-25.

We invited residents to decorate their yard, house or both. Judges will pick their favorite displays, and the public will vote for the People’s Choice prize on Facebook.


  • Traditional - lights, luminaries, ornaments, Santa Claus
  • Most Creative - original decorations (look at Pinterest for ideas), eye-catching lights or a holiday theme
  • Neighborhood - If you live in an HOA or on a street or cul-de-sac where most residents decorate for the holidays, enter your neighborhood in the contest
  • Business - show your business holiday spirit with lights on your building or in your windows

If you have questions, email or call Janae’ Springer at
788-1519 ext.1232.
