Festive fanatics looking to take in light displays in Caledon this holiday season can plan their route with the new Holiday Lights Map guide.

The interactive map launched on Friday, giving residents and business owners a chance to showcase their festive outdoor décor for a chance to win prizes and awards.

All you need to do is register for a Have Your Say Caledon account, submit a photo of your holiday lights and drop a pin on the interactive map to let others in the community know where to come see your display.

“I’ve already seen some incredible décor this holiday season and this map is a fun way to share your talents with the Caledon community,” said Mayor Annette Groves in a release encouraging residents and visitors to check out the map, take a drive and enjoy the holiday season in Caledon.

Along with resident submissions, the Town has included light exhibits like the Alpha Light Exhibit in Alton, the 40-foot Christmas tree in Caledon Village, holiday lights at the John Clarkson Park Skate loop in Southfields Village and an iridescent reindeer and festive gazebo in Palgrave.

The town’s Community and Cultural Development Team will choose one winner in three categories – most colourful and vibrant, best-decorated business and most festive display.

Entries to the Holiday Lights Map must be submitted by Dec. 29 and winners will be contacted by email in the new year. And while bragging rights and a title are always nice, Manager of Recreation and Culture Jason Schildroth says the holiday lights initiative “isn’t about winning.”

“It’s about showing pride in our neighbourhoods and downtowns, encouraging visits to our parks and town squares and spreading some happiness during the holiday season,” he said.
