Merry and Bright Contest

This year, we’ve teamed up with the MUN Botanical Garden to offer a new take on the Merry and Bright contest! Check out all the details from the Botanical Garden below.

Ready to be dazzled by holiday lights? Although we can’t host you at the Garden this year, we still want to share the warmth of Merry & Bright with you this season! So we’re hitting the road in search of YOUR merry and bright lights this December with Merry & Bright: On the Road for a holiday decorating contest.

Let’s light up the province and show off your seasonal strands, gigantic garlands, and terrific tree trimmings. View and vote for your favourite decorations on our Facebook page!

Contest opens December 3rd for entries and voting begins December 12th. See below for details.

Interested in entering the contest?

If your home is located in the towns/cities of St. John’s, Mount Pearl, Torbay, Paradise, Portugal Cove-St. Philip’s, Conception Bay South, Grand Falls-Windsor, Corner Brook, or Happy Valley-Goose Bay, your property is visible from a public roadway, and you want to be the talk of the town—you’re eligible to enter!

You will be automatically entered into two prize categories—Regional Award to be judged by a panel of ‘celeb’ judges and the People’s Choice Award whereby judging will be conducted through Facebook votes. Cash prizes available and more!

Enter using our online form between December 3rd and December 10th with a photo of your outdoor display. Your display must be completely installed and lit nightly between the hours of 6 and 9 p.m. beginning no later than December 12th, 2020 and continuing through the evening of January 5th, 2021. Voting will close at noon on January 6th and winners will be announced via social media and/or CBC broadcast!

Happy decorating!
