2023 Deck the House

The City of Boca Raton has opened the call for entries to the Deck the House Decorating Contest, a festive community event inviting residents to showcase their holiday spirit and creativity by adorning their homes with stunning decorations.   Online applications will be accepted through December 3 at 5 p.m.

“We encourage our residents to be a part of this family-friendly competition while illuminating the streets and spreading holiday joy,” said Richard Mahler, Community Events Coordinator for the City of Boca Raton.

Contestants will be judged based on the submission of up to three photos and one video with an emphasis on the “curb appeal” as viewed from the street.  Trophies will be awarded in four categories – Best Entryway, Best Traditional, Best Use of Imagination and Best Overall. Winners will be announced on December 17 and notified via email that day.
