Deck the Halls: Snoqualmie Holiday Lights Contest back for 5th year, Entries due Soon

Have you noticed lots of outdoor light displays going up around Snoqualmie? Our neighborhood has a few big ones and they always make me smile as I drive by.

Back for a 5th year: Snoqualmie Holiday Lights Contest! The City of Snoqualmie Parks & Recreation Department and the Snoqualmie Ridge Residential Owners Association (ROA) invite all Snoqualmie Ridge and downtown residents and businesses to participate in the Fifth Annual Snoqualmie Holiday Lights Contest.

Any resident, business, neighborhood, or community organization located within Snoqualmie city limits is eligible. Entries will be evaluated based upon creativity, originality, thematic elements, and overall design quality – not just the quantity of lights.

[We’ll also try to publish a list of participating homes/businessess for residents who enjoy driving by these decked out holiday places.]


  • December 8th at 4PM: Entries due to Snoqualmie Parks & Recreation office
  • December 11th: Building must be fully decorated and lit
  • December 12th-13th from 6PM – 9PM: Impartial panel will conduct judging
