When it comes to holiday light displays, Colorado really brought its A-game this year.
There were more than 125 entries in our annual Holiday Lights contest, and we noticed some trends. “Star Wars” and “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation” are two of the most popular themes this year, along with vintage-style displays using old-school decorations.
By far the biggest trend we noticed this year: Dozens of LED light displays programmed to sync up with music visitors can hear by tuning in to a specific FM radio station from their car. Some festive Front Rangers even teamed up with neighbors to create larger displays, and those with kiddos will find several neighborhoods hosting visits from Santa or mailboxes where kids can drop off letters for Kris Kringle.
In the meantime, it’s up to you to decide which home will be crowned the winner this year. Here’s how the contest works: Click through a slideshow of the entries on The Know’s Facebook page and “like” your favorite houses (Don’t forget to like The Know’s page, too, so you don’t miss the winner). The house with the most likes as of noon Wednesday, Dec. 22, will be crowned the winner and receive a $100 Visa gift card to help make next year’s display even more epic. Votes that come in after the deadline will not be counted.
The winning home will be announced in print and online on Christmas Day. Who will win the ultimate neighborhood bragging rights this year? We’ll find out next week.
To check out some of the best displays, build your own personalized holiday light display route using our interactive map. Last year’s winner, the Godek family, used their amazing light set-up to raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project. Vote now!
