NIAGARA FALLS, ON - Christmas magic is in the air! Help make December 2020 the season to sparkle by registering your entry in this annual Christmas lighting competition. Now hosted by the City of Niagara Falls, the Sparkle Awards tradition will continue, as we recognize the best residential and commercial property holiday light displays in Niagara Falls. 

Make your Christmas bright…and spread cheer by turning your front yard or business storefront into a Christmas wonderland! It’s a perfect project for the entire family or your business to enjoy, so pull out your reindeer, wreaths, and of course, your lights! 

Sparkle Awards entry is free for all Niagara Falls residential, commercial and multi-residential properties and makes you eligible to win great prizes. The deadline to enter is Friday, December 11, 2020 by 4:00 p.m.

The 2020 competition will include two categories - residential and commercial/multi-residential. Each category has two opportunities to win prizes - as one of three Judge's Favourite Awards, or as one of three People's Choice Awards. The lighting displays will be assessed on their overall appearance, attractiveness, creative illumination and colour coordination.  

Everyone can enjoy this holiday lighting extravaganza! Simply follow the Sparkle Map from December 15 to 20 to see all of the entries and vote for the People’s Choice Award. Voting will close on December 20, 11:59 p.m. The Sparkle Map will be posted on by December 15 to help you plan your route for viewing and voting.
