time for the 3rd Annual Cabbagetown Holiday Lights contest!

Holiday-lights-2017-BannerContributed by the Cabbagetown Residents association — In what has become a popular annual tradition, it’s time to show off Cabbagetown’s houses in all of their illuminated glory. Whether the inspiration leans toward Martha Stewart or maybe the Griswold Family, show off your decorating style or nominate one of your neighbours!
There are three ways you can enter:

  • Post a photo to Twitter with the hashtag #cabbagetownlights;
  • Post a photo to our Facebook page timeline with the hashtag #cabbagetownlights

or email us your photo at info@cabbagetowner.com

Please include the address of the home in the photo, so we can include the street name on the voting website and know how to contact the residents if their house wins.
Photos can be submitted anytime between Friday, December 1 and Tuesday, December 26. By submitting your photo, you consent to your photo being reproduced on a voting website that will contain all of the submissions. Photos will be identified by the house’s street but no names or other personal identifying details will be published.
The voting website will go live on Friday, December 15 to not give too much of an advantage to those who submit early. However, don’t wait too long to enter!
Whichever three photo submissions have the most votes by the end of the day on December 26 wins a trophy, a one-year membership to the Cabbagetown Residents Association, and bragging rights! The top three vote-getting houses will get to display a lawn-sign marking their achievement. For the purpose of determining resident winners, when the same house is photographed more than once, total votes will be counted.
Only one vote will be allowed per IP address, however you can switch your vote anytime up until the deadline.
In order to spread the holiday joy around the neighbourhood, past 1st place winners are ineligible to win again, but we certainly encourage them to keep up the decorating spirit!
