(I do not want to publish their exact address without their permission, but if you drive down those blocks you will know immediately which houses they are)


All winners have a yard sign in their yards so you’ll know who they are and the “best blocks” winners have signs at the entrances to their blocks too.


Congratulations to the winners and thank you so much for all the hard work you put into lighting up your houses and getting into the holiday spirit.


The judges had a really tough time judging the winners.  We spent 3 weeks driving around the whole neighborhood looking for houses that jumped out at us.  There was an amazing splash of color this year, some houses have set their lights to music, some have chosen themes and some are just beautifully elegant.  It was incredibly hard to form our favorite Top 10 and then even more so to choose the Top 3.


I would like to thank the judges for giving up quite a bit of time driving around the neighborhood at night and giving up their evenings to help me.  Extra special thanks to Cody Bell and Debbie Pfaff for driving around for 1 ½ hours with me to do the final judging.  You really don’t have to go very far to see some awesome light displays!  It’s right here in our neighborhood!  Go and check them out!
