A Message From the Light Up Lake Jackson Committee!
A few residents of Sebring, who live near or on Lake Jackson, formed a committee in 2021 to help expand Christmas cheer from the downtown circle to all of the neighborhood. The idea is simple: encourage our neighbors to decorate their homes, businesses, and docks to show their Christmas spirit through a Christmas light contest. Our goal is to create a corridor of lights from U.S. 27 to downtown and around the lake that inspires the Christmas spirit in all who live here or visit during the holidays. We are an all volunteer committee and everything from the website to yards signs were created and paid for through committee donations.
The Light Up Lake Jackson committee knows that some healthy competition can inspire creativity. The committee will choose one winner from each category listed below. All entries will be invited to a special event where the winners will be announced. Each winner will receive a framed photograph of their home, business, or dock along with recognition on the Light Up Lake Jackson website and Facebook page and a "winner" yard sign!
The house that demonstrates the most Christmas cheer will be the category winner. We are not limiting entries to individual households, so if you and your neighbors want to get together for an over the top theme...the more the merrier!
We welcome the business community to join in the competitive spirit. Whether you are along U.S. 27 or near downtown, we are looking for a business to go all out with their decorations.
Apartment and Condo Associations
High rises or low rises small to large are encouraged to enter. Themes and unique uses of space will receive additional points. Our apartments and condominiums are some of the most visible sites around Lake Jackson. So how will you make yours stand out?
Deck the Docks
If you live along Lake Jackson and have a dock, this is your chance to truly help light up the lake with lights and decorations. The Christmas Boat Parade will be the judges for this category. Extra points will be given to the decorated dock that has the cheeriest boat parade spectators!
Deck the Trees
Sebring's oak trees and palm trees provide a perfect canvas for the creative decorator. The judges are looking for the tree or group of trees with the most lights and creative decorations.
