Chippewa Valley Parade of Lights

There's something truly magical about holiday lights. Just pouring a cup of hot chocolate, getting in the car with your family, and driving aimlessly around town looking at homes decked out in holiday lights brings so much joy to the heart. This year, the Chippewa Valley Parade of Lights is including a community contest where people can deck their homes and businesses to the fullest of holiday cheer and be entered for a chance to win a category title and prizes! Here's what goes down: homes & businesses in the Chippewa Valley register to decorate their house/yard with holiday lights, their address gets featured on a map and YOU get to drive around town looking at the brightest and most festive houses/businesses in our area. The registration deadline to have your homes & businesses featured is December 10, 2023. Judging will take place on December 15, 2023, and residential displays with be entered to win in the following categories: Best Use of Lights, Most Entertaining Display, Most Creative Display, Judge's Choice, and People's Choice. Check out the map below to see participating homes and businesses on the Chippewa Valley Parade of Lights, and click here to join the Facebook page for more information. This holiday season, fill up the gas tank and crank the holiday tunes because it's certainly the most wonderful time of the year in Eau Claire!
