Christmas Lights

Submissions for the Chubbuck holiday decorating contest are being accepted until 5 p.m. Dec. 2.

CHUBBUCK — Make your Christmas bright and spread the cheer. The city of Chubbuck celebrates Christmas with its annual outdoor decorating contest. It is that time of year again: If you have the most festive house on the block, then we would like to know. The city of Chubbuck invites all residents and businesses to enter the annual holiday decorating contest. This is a great way to show off your community pride and spread cheer throughout the holiday season. It’s also a perfect project for the entire family to enjoy, so pull out your Santa, sled, reindeer, wreaths and, of course, don’t forget the lights. Christmas lights are one fantastic way to celebrate the holiday with your family while observing physical distancing.

The contest is open to all residential homes and businesses within Chubbuck city limits. We encourage businesses to participate as well. Selections will be made in all areas of the city. Winners will be chosen in the following categories: Best Animation, Most Colorful, Most Traditional, Spirit of the Season, Best Commercial/Business, Mayor’s Choice, Clark Griswold Award (most lights) and Best Overall. If you see a house or business that you think deserves an award, let us know by sending us an email at or send us a message through the city of Chubbuck official Facebook page. Please be sure to include as much information as possible, including photos, which award you think they should win and, most importantly, the address. Submissions will be accepted through 5 p.m. Dec. 2.

Judging will be held Dec. 3 through 7. On the nights of judging, please turn all your holiday lights on by 6 p.m. and leave them on until 11 p.m. Winners will be announced Dec. 9 via a press release and a sign being placed in the residents’ yard. Signs will be placed no later than Dec. 11. Winners will receive special recognition on the city website, social media and will be spotlighted in the local media.

Happy holidays.
