Help us spread the holiday cheer this year and light up your home for all to admire! The City of Newcastle and its Community Activities Commission invite you to participate in our 2020 Newcastle Holiday Lights Contest. Get creative and decorate your home, apartment or balcony, with lights, music, inflatables and more.

Any resident of a Newcastle home, apartment or condominium is welcome to register for this FREE contest. Winning participants will be featured on City of Newcastle social media accounts and receive a victory yard sign plus a prize package from the City. Entries should be submitted by December 18 at 12 p.m.

The panel of judges will review the entries December 18-20 from 5-8 p.m., so please ensure your displays are lit up during those dates and times. Participants will be evaluated based upon creativity, originality, thematic elements and overall design quality – not just the quantity of lights.
