About the Contest

Hang the wreath, untangle those lights, pull out the inflatables and start decorating! Back by popular demand, the City of Port St. Lucie’s fourth-annual PSLinLights Holiday Lights Contest starts December 2, 2019. The City is looking for homeowners, tenants, or lessees who have the spirit of Christmas and a little bit of Griswold in them to participate in the City's Holiday Light Contest. This outdoor holiday lights and yard decorating contest is a festive way to demonstrate your community pride and light up the holiday season.


You Can Win!

Do you or your neighbor light up the block with holiday cheer each year? Then, you could be the next winner of the #PSLinLights Holiday Lights Contest. Besides pride, the first place PSLinLights Holiday Lights Contest winners will receive a yard sign commemorating their triumph. New for 2019 there are three categories for prizes:

  1. New Kid on the Block (first-time residential entries only)
  2. PSL Showstopper (best overall PSL residential light display)
  3. Light up the Neighborhood (This is awarded to the City’s most festive NICE neighborhood. At least six homes from a NICE neighborhood must enter in order be eligible for this neighborhood prize). Find your NICE neighborhood.

Participation is free. All participants should be willing to share your address and family name.



Applications will be accepted through January 5, 2020. Judging will begin on January 6, 2020, and end on January 9, 2020. Winners will be announced publicly on the City of Port St. Lucie’s website and social media accounts, Facebook and Twitter, on January 10, 2020. The winners will also be acknowledged at a future City Council Meeting.



When you register your home in the contest, the City adds the display information into a searchable database creating a must-see holiday light display list with pictures and a map. The holiday light map can be used by the entire community to create their very own holiday light tour of the City.
