Light Up North Bend holiday lighting contest deadline extended to December 14

Light Up North Bend-Deadline Extended

The deadline for the Light Up North Bend holiday lighting contest has been extended to Wednesday, December 14. After a winter storm hit the region last week, many citizens and business owners had to delay installing holiday lights on their homes and storefronts. The City hopes the added time to deck out our community is helpful.

Please consider adding your own touch to North Bend’s holiday spirit this winter by registering your home, business, or neighborhood for the 3rd Annual Light up North Bend holiday lighting contest.

There are 4 Divisions: Single-family home; Multi-family home (apartment, condo, townhome); Business; Neighborhood. There are 3 categories within the Single-family, Multi-family and Business Divisions:  

  • VMA: Best Use of Music
  • Hollywood: Best Theme
  • Griswold: Best ‘Overuse’ of Lights (channel your inner Clark)  

The Neighborhood Division winner will be chosen based on the largest number of homes decked out for the season.

Participating homes and businesses must be decorated and ready by Friday, December 16th at 5 p.m. Judging will occur December 16 – 18 with the help North Bend city councilmembers and other local leaders.

Register using this fillable PDF Light up North Bend registration form. Participants can email the form to or deliver to the City Hall Front Counter during business hours listed on the form.

Did we mention prizes? We wouldn’t forget that part. The Neighborhood division winner will get bragging rights and the winners of each category in the Single-Family, Multi-Family and Business Divisions will receive a $50 gift card to the North Bend business of their choosing.

Just like last year, the holiday fun won’t end once the winners are announced. After the judging is complete, we will create a map for community distribution so that residents can do a Light Up North Bend Holiday Spirit Tour to see all the twinkling, decorated homes that participated.
