It's the most wonderful time of the year and there's also no better time to show the world how much you love Christmas. Let's light up our neighborhoods more than ever before. How?

Between now and December 18th we need you to share photos of your brightest, most creative and most breathtaking outdoor holiday light displays.

Maybe this year you lugged all 12 crates of lights out of the basement and blanketed the entire house. Perhaps you rented some heavy equipment to decorate the towering pine tree in your front yard. Maybe there's a life-size replica of Santa's sleigh shining brighter than a Vegas casino in front of your business.

We want to see it.

But it's also the time of year for giving, so we'd love to wrap up a tiny box containing $500 CASH to one lucky person who shares their beautiful holiday display with us, courtesy of Sargent's Gardens in Rochester.

Ready to light up Southeast Minnesota and send 2022 out with the brightest celebration ever? Submit your photo in the form below. Keep checking back here as we highlight the best displays.

Let’s lift as many spirits as possible by bringing brightness to everyone.

Note: The map above contains some photos from last year and will be updated as new photos come in.

IMPORTANT: If you entered last year, please enter again this year and send an updated photo.

Photo submissions must be of an outdoor holiday display at your home or business in the Southeastern Minnesota region. The person submitting the photo must be the person who took the photo.
