Christmas Home Decorating Contest
 
 

The Holidays may feel a little different this year, but that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate the season!  The second annual Christmas Home Decorating Contest invites community members to deck out their homes to see which one shines the brightest.  The participating homes will be judged on visual impact, creativity/ innovation, use of space, incorporation of a theme, and cohesiveness.  "Judges Choice" will be awarded to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners based on the contest criteria.  "People's Choice" will be determined by photo submissions from the contestants and voting from the public.  Contestants must be Porterville residents to qualify for a prize, but all local residents are invited to be on the community map!


Take the tour
Grab a cup of cocoa, get in the holiday spirit, and load up in the family vehicle to check out all of the festive homes in our community.  All participants received a yard sign to identify their home for the contest.  Each of the locations is unique and awesomely creative in its own way and are best seen at night. 

Just click on the enlarge symbol in the top right corner of the map to get addresses and a view of all the participating homes!
