Holiday House Decorating Contest

Shed a little light on your neighborhood and help make Tinley Park shine with the Village’s Holiday House Decorating Contest, going on now!

To enter your home into the contest, visit and fill out the provided form. Be sure to attach a photo of your house, too! If you would also like to submit a five-second video of your home’s decorations in action, you can text it to (708) 927-5232 with your name and address. The deadline to submit your entry form is Sunday, Dec. 6.
Judging will take place from Dec. 7 to 10, and winners will be announced Dec. 11. Lights, music, animations and decorations must be activated during judging, which will take place at dusk. Houses will be judged in three categories: Best Use of Music, Best Animations and Best Overall Theme.
Winners in each category will receive bragging rights and a $100 gift card to the Tinley Park business of their choice. Addresses will be shared on a map so residents can drive around and enjoy the beautifully decorated homes. If you have any questions, email
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, some holiday events such as the Holiday Market, the Parade of Lights and Photos with Santa have been cancelled. The Village still has plenty of fun holiday activities planned, however, including a virtual Tree Lighting Ceremony, an Elf in the Window scavenger hunt contest and several holiday donation drives. Stay tuned for more information!
