December 8, 2020 (South Lake Tahoe, Calif./Nev.) – Local businesses and residents are LIGHTING up the town for the Light Up the South Shore Holiday Contest and bringing much-needed cheer with their festive light displays. The community is invited to travel the Holiday Light Trail Map for a fun and safe activity to enjoy some holiday spirit!
The Tahoe Chamber has created a Trail of Lights Map featuring almost 50 different stops including 16 local businesses. Businesses and residents that have opted in to the competition will be competing and judged by the Merry & Bright Ambassadors in five different categories. Participating businesses will be judged for the Best of Show, Best Window Display and the Clark Griswold (most lights) Award, while residents will be judged for The Neighbor that SLEIGH-d Award. All businesses and eligible residents will also be competing for The People’s Choice Award. The interactive Trail of Lights map can be viewed at https://bit.ly/HolidayLightsTrailMap.
Trail travelers can expect to see fun displays, including themes like Santa’s Coming to Town, The Dragon That Stole Christmas, and Wags and Whiskers Wonderland. After exploring the map, community members are asked to cast their vote for their favorite display for the People’s Choice Award. Votes can be entered at https://bit.ly/HolidayLightsTourPeoplesChoiceAward.
All red and green Christmas light markers shown on the map can be voted on by the public to win the highly coveted, People’s Ornament Trophy. The other four award categories will be judged and awarded by our Merry and Bright Ambassadors from December 18th to December. 20th to determine the winners. Winners will receive a variety of awesome prizes, bragging rights, and illuminated trophies.
The Light Up the South Shore Holiday Contest would not be possible without our sponsors, El Dorado County, the City of South Lake Tahoe, the Tahoe Daily Tribune, and Ski Run Marina.
