To enter the Light Up Wheaton contest and be added to the tour map, register through the Wheaton Park District by Friday, Dec. 8. Registered participants must submit a photo of their submission by Friday, Dec. 8 at noon to In order to recognize new participants, winners from 2022 are not eligible to win in 2023 but are still encouraged to register and participate.

Judging will be from Dec. 9-17. Judges will be observing houses during this period from 6-9 p.m. daily. Participants have the chance to compete in Most Creative, People’s Choice Award, and Mayor’s Choice Award. 

Photos and locations will be shared on the City of Wheaton and Wheaton Park District Facebook pages for public voting and all homes participating will be listed on the Wheaton Park District website for families looking to drive by and see the entries in person.
