                CHUBBUCK – The overall winner of this year’s contest was 5070 Pleasant View.  They have a huge tree all wrapped in lights that light up the entire street! The larger bushes, trees and pillars are all wrapped very precisely. The windows and roofline are outlined perfectly, and it is all very neat and very nicely done.

This year, the award for People’s Choice was given to 382 Lavendar. This is a small, animated pixel display that is new this year and fun to watch! This award is voted for and chosen via online survey posted on the City of Chubbuck’s social media and has taken the place of the Mayor’s Choice award this year.

New this year, we wanted to give special recognition to a specific street or neighborhood that is exceptionally decorated. The winner this year is Boyd, Jake, & Hiram streets just off Chubbuck Road. Nearly every house is decorated!

Because we want to include as many people as possible in the contest, including those who have not won awards in the past, we have two additional categories of houses that deserve recognition, even though they will not get a physical award in their yard. Santa’s Favorites– These are houses that are above and beyond the typical Christmas Display and include many of our houses that win awards every year. Even though these houses did not get an award, they still deserve recognition.

There were so many great displays that it made it very difficult to pick the winners this year! We hope to see even more houses with bigger and better displays for next year.
