It’s the most wonderful time of the year: time for the 2nd Annual Cabbagetown Holiday Lights contest! We thought that it would be fun to see some of Cabbagetown’s houses in all of their illuminated glory. Whether the inspiration leans toward Martha Stewart or maybe the Griswold Family, show off your decorating style or nominate one of your neighbours.

There are three ways you can enter:
– Post a photo to Twitter with the hashtag #cabbagetownlights;
– Post a photo to our Facebook page timeline with the hashtag #cabbagetownlights;
– or email us your photo at info@cabbagetowner.com

Include the address of the home in the photo, so we can include it on the voting website.


Photos can be submitted anytime from now to Monday December 26. By submitting your photo, you consent to your photo being reproduced on a voting website that will contain all of the submissions. Photos will be identified by the house’s address but no names or other personal identifying details will be published. The voting website will go live on Friday, December 16 to not give too much of an advantage to those who submit early. However, don’t wait too long to enter!

Whichever photo submission has the most votes by the end of the day on December 26 wins a trophy, a one-year membership to the Cabbagetown Residents Association, and bragging rights! There will be recognition for the three houses pictured also.

Pictured is last year’s winner from Mark Hendricks and a picture of the same house this year.
