Hall of Fame
Participants are entered into the Hall of Fame if their light display has been the recipient of a Mayor’s Christmas light competition award on two occasions. Once a light display has been inducted into the Hall of Fame they are still able to participate in the competition but will be ineligible to receive an award. All Hall of Fame recipients receive a certificate in recognition and will be featured on the council’s website.
