Lighting up the holidays: Contest, tour set

Gloucester Township hosting holiday light decorating contest, will offer self-guided tour maps

Do you take pride in decorating your house for the holidays? Is your house considered the “showstopper” on the block? Do cars slow down to admire your elaborate holiday display? If so, Gloucester Township has the perfect contest for you!

Mayor David Mayer and Council are excited to launch a new holiday tradition this year. The township is giving residents the exciting opportunity to not only enter the 2020 Holiday House Decorating Contest, but also to submit their house to Gloucester Township’s first ever Self-Drive Holiday Light Tour, if they wish. The houses will be mapped out on an interactive map for residents to drive by and enjoy!

Contest entries can be submitted now through Monday, Dec. 21. Pictures can be emailed to mayor@glotwp.com. Please no videos.

Residents will be encouraged to take a brief survey to vote on the best decorated house starting Dec. 28. The survey will be available on the website as well as social media platforms until EOD Thursday, Dec. 31. Three winners (1st, 2nd, and 3rd) will be announced on Friday, Jan. 1, and presented with gift cards to a local business.

Please specify in your email that you wish to be a part of our Self-Drive Holiday Light Tour, and if so, include your physical address to be placed on the map.

To find the interactive map and for more information, visit glotwp.com or call the mayor’s office at (856) 374-3514.
