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

Between now and December 16, we need you to share photos of your most creative, most beautiful, and most breathtaking holiday displays in the Faribault and Owatonna area.

Maybe this year you lugged all 12 crates of lights out of the basement and blanketed the entire house. Maybe 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 Upper Lakes Foods.

Ready to light up Southern 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.

Photo submissions must be of a holiday display at your home or place of business in the Southern Minnesota region. The person submitting the photo must be the person who took the photo.

Sorry, the entry period has now ended.
