ROCKVILLE CENTRE, NY — The Village of Rockville Centre is currently seeking entries for its first “RVC Holiday Lights Night,” a community-wide home decorating contest.
Homeowners are invited to dig out their lights and decorations to showcase their holiday spirit and traditions to win bragging rights. Each home entered in the contest will be included in a community map that will be available to residents, who are encouraged to take a tour of the homes and cast their vote online at www.rvcny.gov, or by dropping off a ballot with Santa and his helpers at Village Hall on Dec. 13 from 6 to 8 p.m. The winning designs will be announced on the village website and social media pages on Dec. 15.
Homeowners can register their home to be a part of the village-wide contest by calling the Recreation Center at 678-9238 by Dec. 9. Homes should be fully decorated by Dec. 10 and will be judged on curb appeal in the following categories:
Clark Griswold: Over-the-top lighting and decorations.
Martha Stewart: Design elements that would make Martha Stewart jealous.
Party of Lights: Can we see your home from space?
Family Friendly: Displays that engage the youngest residents.
The community map and voting ballot will be available at www.rvcny.gov early on Dec. 13. Residents are encouraged to take the RVC Lights Night tour that evening. Due to Covid-19, all participants are asked to remain in their vehicles and to wear a face covering when the windows are rolled down.
