Holiday cheer comes from giving to someone – in 2020, we’re asking you to give a little brighter to the Portland community! 'Tis the season to be JOLLY and the BEST way to spread Christmas cheer this COVID-19 year, is to decorate your home and/or business and sign up for our Nights of Lights!
Yes, we’ve adapted again. While we won’t be able to gather for Holiday Fest Light Parade, or Snowball Drop, we have another great idea to celebrate together (apart). All you have to do is decorate for the holidays with your best and brightest lights and register (here with this link) – we’ll put a virtual map and contest together, families can either walk or drive to enjoy the holiday decorations and stop into businesses who are open for shopping and great deals! *Please follow safety guidelines and be respectful of any restrictions/regulations at each establishment.
Hey! If you see a great display, or know someone who does a great job ‘lighting it up’ go ahead and register their address (they may be too busy channeling their inner Clark Griswold and forget, lol)
AND there will be winners! Community votes will narrow the field to the top 10 – Santa and his team of professional decorators will award 1st - $150, 2nd - $100, 3rd - $50. Speaking of Santa & Mrs. Clause, they will do a photo op at the first 15 locations that request a visit, and deliver the picture by email.
Register by Friday Dec. 4
Voting begins Tuesday Dec 8 and ends Sunday Dec 13
Winners announced Tuesday Dec 15 Watch for the map to be published and the link for voting by selecting ‘going or interested’ on the Facebook Event – checking out our website miportland.org/calendar or our Facebook page MI Portland Downtown
The brightest lights bring the brightest smiles. Let's work together to spread some holiday cheer this year.
