Holiday fanatics, it’s that time of year - the 4th annual Holiday Decorating Contest is here! Let's get glowing! Catch the holiday spirit and share your creativity with the Milton community. Milton Recreation invites community members and businesses to "deck the halls" by going all out in home holiday decorating for the season. Each eye-catching display will be judged, with four contestants receiving a fun prize and bragging rights. Looking forward to a cheery and bright holiday season in Milton!

  • All registrants will be added to a map that will be shared with the Milton community to visit and enjoy the decorations themselves, and vote in the People's Choice Award Poll. The Poll and Map will be released on December 13.
  • Judging will take place on December 14.
  • People's Choice Award voting ends at 12:00 p.m. December 20.
