2014 Mountain House Holiday Lights Contest is Underway!


We’re excited to announce that this year’s Mountain House Holiday Lights Contest has officially begun! Homeowners are already registering and decorating their homes in the spirit of the holiday season. This is one of our community’s favorite times of the year, where homeowners from all across the Mountain House villages get inspired by the holidays and deck their halls in bright holiday lights. Whether you participate for fun, or you’re out for one of our awesome prizes, or maybe you just prefer to view the lights as a bystander, this is an activity that the whole community can enjoy.

This year, we will have winners chosen by judges who will tour Mountain House to see the homes in person and online voting. The three Judges’ Awards are granted to the 3 homes selected by the judges. The two People’s Choice prizes will be presented to the two homes with the most online votes.

Are you ready to make your home shine for the holidays? You might get the chance to win some incredible prizes…including a 1st Place prize of $250! Here are some important dates to keep in mind:

  • December 12: Your home must be registered and all of your holiday lights must be up!
  • December 13, 14, 15: A photographer will be coming around and taking pictures of your gorgeous, festive homes!
  • December 16: Delivery of a sign for your front yard will let friends and neighbors know you’ve been entered in to the MH Holiday Lights Contest.
  • December 17-21: Contest voting time period.
  • December 23: Just in time for Christmas, the winners will be announced!
