2020 Niagara Falls Sparkle Awards Winners

NIAGARA FALLS, ON - The results are in! With more than 65 entries and over 1,500 votes, the Sparkle Awards annual holiday lighting competition has been a great success. All 12 prizes have been awarded to the top participating homes and businesses in Niagara Falls.

“There has never been a better year to sparkle!  This year’s Sparkle Awards have brought out the best in Christmas Spirit in our community—and by showing your spirit, you created a winter wonderland for families to explore this holiday!  Thank you!  Merry Christmas and enjoy the show!” said Mayor Jim Diodati.

Like the Spooky Awards held in October, residents were encouraged to decorate and light up their homes--and this time, also their businesses--for a chance to win prizes and spread holiday cheer throughout the city.  The Sparkle Map posted on the City's website was built to help everyone find all of the amazing displays and see them first-hand.  The map included links to Google driving directions and to photos submitted by the competitors. The City’s website received thousands of views, and the online voting process for the People’s Choice Award drew a large response as well.

“The City’s Facebook page and dedicated Sparkle Awards web page received more than 25,000 engagements, interactions and responses throughout the competition with over 1,500 votes. We couldn’t be more pleased with the response from our community and hope everyone has a chance to see the displays for a few more nights,” added Councillor Chris Dabrowski.
