Holiday Lights  Contest

Holiday Lights Contest Banner

MJB logoWe are looking forward to the 3rd Annual Holiday Lights Contest sponsored by MJB Heating & Cooling and Rheem. This year there will be two categories plus a People's Choice pick. 

Santa’s Favorite - Best Lights
As Santa rides his sleigh around Derby, which house will catch his eye? White lights, multi-colored lights or maybe even green? Start decorating early to capture Santa’s prize.

Elves’ Favorite - Best Decorations
If Santa’s elves join him when he delivers presents, which house will have the most fun and interesting décor? A lighted reindeer or perhaps an inflatable Mickey Mouse or hand-crafted decorations. The house that provides entertainment for the elves will surely be the winner of this category.

People’s Choice
Do you think you have what it takes to win the popular vote? All Holiday Lights Contest entries will be photographed and listed on the City’s Facebook page to get the public’s feedback on your decorations. Get your family and friends on board to “like” your photo for a chance to win.

*Entries can only win one category. If an entry wins two categories we will move to the second place entry.

Register by Sunday, Nov. 27.

Lights and decorations must be ready by Nov. 28. Photos of each house will be taken on Nov. 29 and 30.
