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 2019 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.
