Home Lighting Contest

Help us make Redmond glow and show off your decorating skills! 

We invite all Redmond residents to decorate your home or balcony to celebrate the winter season and share your creations with the community. Once your display is complete, come back to this page to enter the contest. Participant photos will be shared on our Facebook page for community voting and you may choose to include your display on the lighting display map for Redmond residents and visitors to enjoy through the month of December and into the New Year.


Voting will take place on Facebook starting Dec. 12 on our Facebook page. If you would like to see all of last years' entries for some inspiration, you can click one of the links below.
