Christmas Across Mt. Juliet


*Judging will begin the week after Thanksgiving, (Depending on the number of applicants) and finish by December 5th.* We ASK that all entries provide photos and videos of their homes/ businesses. 

The Parks Board is encouraging residents and businesses to bring  "Christmas Across Mt. Juliet" in a new, city-wide Christmas lights contest this Christmas season. The city is hoping many homeowners and businesses participate this season to bring extra joy & Christmas spirit across our community.

 The "Christmas Across Mt. Juliet" contest is open to any resident or business location in Mt. Juliet city limits.  Applications are due on Tuesday Dec. 5th, and all homes or businesses must be fully decorated by that night. All participants should be willing to share their home or business address and family or business name. We also hope all participants will leave up their lights through the new year so other residents can check out their holiday lights. 

City representatives will choose the top 10 and drive to those who signed signed up to participate in the competition. If a home or business is not decorated at that time or light are not on, the application will be voided. Participation is free.
