Town Offers Outdoor Holiday Decorating Contest

An outdoor holiday decorating contest is open in Huntington, with a variety of categories available.

Residents and businesses   can enter the contest by submitting their entries and photos on the Town of Huntington website by  Dec. 6. 

Supervisor Chad A. Lupinacci and Councilman Mark Cuthbertson announced the contest, sponsored by Long Islander News, where winners will be announced in the Dec. 24th edition and appear on the Town’s TV channels Optimum 18, FIOS 38 and on Town social media.  

“We wanted to make 2020 a little more fun for everyone so we’ve added a category for displays decorated entirely by kids,” Lupinacci said. “Grown-up decorators should be on notice because kids are our resident holiday experts and they tend to have the best holiday cheer.” 

“I’m looking forward to seeing how creative the displays will be this year,”  Cuthbertson said. “People are already decorating, I think there will be some stiff competition this year” 

Categories include: 

  • Best Residential 
  • Best Commercial 
  • Best Christmas Theme 
  • Best Hanukkah Theme 
  • Best Kwanzaa Theme 
  • Best Kid-Decorated

Lupinacci and Cuthbertson have enlisted the assistance of the Huntington Beautification Council to visit finalists’ properties (exterior only) to judge entries on evenings between Dec. 7 and  Dec. 14. A town videographer will also shoot footage of the winning entries.
