New Baltimore Community Holiday Lights Contest

Untangle those lights, pull out the inflatables, and start decorating! Do you or your neighbor light up the block with holiday cheer each year? Nominate a neighbor or household to win the New Baltimore Community Holiday Lights Contest.

Outdoor Holiday Decorating Contest is a festive way to demonstrate your community pride and light up the holiday season. It's also a great project for the whole family. So pull out your Santas, sleds, reindeer, wreaths and lights and spread the holiday cheer through your neighborhood.

To nominate a fellow New Baltimore resident or your own home, contact the New Baltimore Parks & Recreation Department with the address and name of the homeowner, if known.

Homes winning first place are limited to two consecutive years.

First Place: $100
Second Place: $75
Third Place: $50

Call 586-725-0291 or email for questions.
Nominations will open after Thanksgiving, 2019.

The Rules:

No fee for entry into the contest.

Only decorations visible from the roadway will be subject to grading.

All lights must be on by 6:00 PM Monday-Friday the second week in December for judging each season.

Judging by the Parks and Recreation Commission will be based on arrangement, variety, and overall “WOW!” factor.

Prizes will be awarded for first, second, and third place winners of residential homes, as well as New Baltimore businesses.

Winners will be contacted before the official public announcement at a future Parks and Recreation meeting.

Entries must be residents within the borders of the city of New Baltimore.
