Merry Bright Holiday Lights
Town Events is ready to help make your holiday Merry & Bright. The Committee is hosting the  Merry & Bright Holiday Lights contest. This event will be full of holiday magic for the entire family and local businesses. We believe this contest will light up the town.  Three winners will be selected:  Most Lit Home, Most Lit Business, and Most Lit Neighborhood/Subdivision. 

The  Town of Nolensville is ready to have businesses and homeowners light up the town  with this year’s Merry & Bright Holiday Lights Contest.

All neighborhoods, businesses and homes with a 37135 zip code are invited to enter the contest.  Applications are due on Tuesday, December 15, 2020 and all homes and businesses must be fully decorated by that night. If a home  or business is not decorated by the deadline, the application will be null and void.

Rumor has it that Santa will announce the winners on Sunday, December 20, 2020 by Santa.  Photos and videos of applicants as well as addresses will be posted to the Town's website and  social media pages. 

Participation is free. All participants should be willing to share their home and/or business address. Homes and businesses submitted for the competition will be collectively judged by the Merry & Bright Hometown Holiday Event Committee members.
