The town offers the following guidelines for the contest:

  • Open to all Niagara-on-the-Lake residents and business owners.
  • One photo per property.
  • Only exterior decorating will be considered.
  • Photo must be submitted by the property owner or with the property owner's permission.
  • Contestants should be willing to allow the town to scale, crop, or alter the size and colour of submitted images, as required.
  • Submitted photos may be shared and used by the municipality.

"Nothing lifts my spirit and warms my heart more than the twinkling of tinsel and lights this time of year," Lord Mayor Betty Disero said in a media release from the town. 

"I think we all need an extra dose of that magic this year. So come on, Niagara-on-the-Lake, let's see you sparkle!"
