Christmas Lighting Contest

Untangle those lights, pull out the inflatables, and start decorating! Do you or your neighbor light up the block with holiday cheer each year? Nominate yourself or a neighbor to win Keep NRH Beautiful's 2020 Christmas Lighting Contest.

Christmas light contests are a festive way to demonstrate your community pride and light up the holiday season. It's also a great project for the whole family. So pull out your Santas, sleds, reindeer, wreaths and lights and spread the holiday cheer through your neighborhood.


No fee for entry into the contest.

Nominations must be homes within the boundaries of North Richland Hills.

Only decorations visible from the roadway will be subject to judging.

Winners will be contacted before the official public announcement at a meeting of the City Council.

Homes are limited to winning once every 3 years.


Nominations will be accepted until 3:00 pm Friday, December 11.


Judging by the Keep NRH Beautiful Commission will take place on Saturday, December 12 and Sunday December 13. It is suggested that lights be kept on from 6 pm to 10 pm on judging nights. All judging will be completed no later than 10:00 pm on December 13. Judging by the Commission will be based on arrangement, variety, and overall “WOW!” factor.

Participants should ensure that all lights, animations and decorations are in place and activated for the judging periods on both nights.

Due to Covid-19 each member of the Keep NRH Commission is unable to judge in one vehicle as in years past. For this reason, commission members will be completing all judging in their own vehicles.

Winners will be announced on Monday, December 14.
