Holiday Lights Contest

Murrieta Holiday Home Decorating Contest Results

A special thank you goes out to all of this year’s participants in the City of Murrieta’s 2013 Holiday Home Decorating Contest! 

This year, Santa and his judging committee asked for a little help and requested that the public weigh in on rating the best and the brightest that the season has to offer.  There were five categories for which the entries were eligible:  Best Block, Holiday Spirit, Best Use of Lights, Most Festive, and Most Creative.  

Online voting took place from December 9 through December 18 for 34 total entries (30 houses and 4 blocks).  The city received a total of 3,800 votes for all the categories combined.

The winners of each category and the honorable mentions are listed below.  Each family will receive a special recognition yard sign as well as mention on the City's website.
