About the Christmas Lights Contest

Dig out those Christmas lights from the attic and get creative. Whether you go for a traditional look, love 10-foot inflatables or take the Griswold Family Christmas to heart, all ideas are welcome! Both homes and businesses located in Pennsylvania's Erie, Crawford and Warren counties can participate. Let’s send 2020 out on a bright note!

  • As a new fundraiser for the Barber National Institute, a minimum donation of $25 will register a private residence, and a $50 minimum donation will sign up a business or organization location. 
  • Register by Dec. 5. Your decorations do not need to be up before you register.
  • To enter, we require a clear, “night-time” photo of your finished decorations submitted no later than Monday, Dec. 7 at midnight.
  • Please keep your holiday display lit from dusk until at least 9 p.m. each night through the duration of the contest, ending Saturday, Jan. 2, 2021.
  • Addresses of the entered houses and businesses will be made public online and in print for the community to use to drive by all participating lighting displays. 
  • After registering, homeowners will provide a “Display Title” to be used instead of your name, as well as the exact address to show the location of your display. Make your front yard special and your house could win big!
  • We’re encouraging the community to select the winners by voting for their favorite entries. Online voting will be open from December 12 - January 2. Ask your family, friends and neighbors to vote for your Christmas lights to win!
  • Three winners will be selected in both the home and business categories. Homes could win cash awards and businesses can win great prize packages! Stay tuned for further information about prizes.
