Posted on 11/17/2023

Help us spread holiday cheer and light up your home for all to admire! The City of Newcastle and its Community Activities Commission invite you to participate in the 2023 Lights of Newcastle Outdoor Holiday Display Contest. Get creative and decorate your house, apartment, or balcony with lights and decorations.

Any resident of a Newcastle house, apartment, or condominium is welcome to register for this FREE event.


Contest Rules:

  • Homes (house, apartment, condo) located in Newcastle city limits can participate.

  • Display must be visible from the sidewalk or street.

  • Display should be lighted for judging between 5:00 - 8:00 p.m., December 15-21.

  • Be creative, be festive, and have fun! Displays will be evaluated for their originality, thematic elements, and overall design quality - not just the quantity of lights.
