It’s that time of year again to get into the festive spirit with some twinkling lights, inflatable characters, and tons of garland!  The City’s annual Deck the City Holiday Decorating Contest is back! 

Nominate your own home, your neighbor's home, or as many awesomely decorated homes  you see in College Park!  The nomination period is between December 1 through 19, 2021.  

We are hosting a safe pandemic contest again this year.   To ensure safe physical distancing, all entries must have photos of the decorations in order to be entered. Nominated homes will be posted on the City's Facebook page. The photo with the most likes will be the online digital winner! We will also be awarding 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners and Mayor's Choice awards.  

All entries must be submitted by 11:59 pm on Sunday, December 19. Online voting will occur on the City’s Facebook page on December 20th through December 22nd and winners will be announced online on December 23rd.


Winners of the Online Voting will receive a gift card to their favorite College Park business for $100, $50, and $25 for first, second and third place. 

Winners for both online voting and Mayor's Choice will receive yard signs to show off their accomplishment.
