Register today for the holiday house decorating contest!

DECK THE LAWN! Can your holiday decorations take home top prize for Collingswood’s first residential holiday decorating contest?

It’s not too early to think about stringing lights and garland for Collingswood’s first Neighborhood Holiday Decorating Contest! Following on the success of the annual storefront decorating contest, we are bringing the competition to the neighborhoods.

Do you go all out for the holiday season? Are you a Clark Griswold wannabe? Are you completely trimmed out in garland and lights? Take home bragging rights this year if you think your home (or block) has what it takes to be named BEST decorated! Register in categories including Classic, Best Block (get your neighbors together – a block must have at least five homes within the same block to register, themes suggested) and Most Creative (best use of lights/effects/whimsy). Decorate your home however you like. Judging will include doors, windows, yards - anything that can be seen from the street or sidewalk. Homes will be judged by Collingswood Rotary Club.

Homes must be registered for the competition by Wednesday, November 27 at midnight. Homes must be located in Collingswood. Houses must be decorated and prepared for judging by Thursday, December 5. Winners will be announced December 19. Register for Collingswood’s Residential Holiday Decorating Contest here.
Registrants will be featured on Collingswood’s first Holly Jolly Trolley lights tour! See the magnificently decorated business districts and homes registered for the residential decorating contest each Friday in December. Guests can take a free, festive trolley tour and enjoy block after block of homes trimmed in holiday cheer! The trolley will board in Collingswood’s downtown, giving guests an opportunity to plan a night to enjoy the trolley then shop and dine in the Borough’s “winter wonderland” which includes caroling, free visits with Santa and free parking!
