City of Chubbuck 2021 Christmas Lighting Contest Dates Announced


CHUBBUCK, Idaho (KIFI) – If you have the most party house in the neighborhood (or the most party area in town), the town of Chubbuck would love to know about it.

The Town of Chubbuck invites all residents and businesses to participate in the annual Holiday Decorating Contest.

The contest is open to all residences and businesses located within the city limits of Chubbuck. Selections will be made in all areas of the city.

Winners will be chosen from the following categories: best animation, more colorful, more traditional, spirit of the season (2), best publicity / company, audience’s choice, Clark Griswold award (more lights) and best ensemble.

And new this year, the city will give special recognition to a street, cul-de-sac or small neighborhood that has the most decorated homes or the best combined display.

If you see a home, business, street, or neighborhood that you think deserves an award, let the city know by emailing [email protected] or message through the official Facebook page of the town of Chubbuck. Make sure to include as much information as possible, including photos, the prize you think they should win, and most importantly, the address. Submissions will be accepted until December 1st.

Judging will be based on “curb appeal” seen from the street, which means that only decorations located on the street side of a property will be judged. Corner lots will be judged from both streets. Judges will not step onto any property to view back or side yards. Criteria will include: Unique design and creative use of lights and decorations; scenario or theme; presentation and placement of decorations, animated objects, etc. ; and general presentation. Think of Clark Griswold from the movie “Christmas Vacation”,

Judging will take place from November 29 to December 7. On judgment nights, turn on all your holiday lights before 6 p.m. and leave them on until 11 p.m. The winners will be announced on December 8 and a sign will be placed in their backyard. Winners will receive special recognition at the Christmas in the Park event on December 10, on the City’s website, social media and will be highlighted by local media.
