Village of South Elgin Holiday Lights Decorating Contest

Voting has closed for 2020. What began with 16 homes competing in two categories (Traditional and Griswold) in our first Holiday Lights Decorating Contest, ended December 20 and more than 2500 votes later. The people have named the following two homes as this year’s winners: 364 Juniper Lane (Traditional - 485 total votes) and 1408 Timber Lane (Griswold - 471 total votes). The two winning homes will receive a $25 restaurant gift card plus a trophy presented by the Village Board of Trustees Monday, January 4. Thank you to all who participated and/or voted. We will leave the images and map of all the houses posted below. All of the homes need to be seen to be fully appreciated, and you're welcome to continue enjoying them throughout the holiday season!
