The 2nd Mckinleyville Annual Christmas Lighting Contest; Find Maps, Sponsors, and Prize Info Here!

With great honor and pride we bring to you the 2nd Mckinleyville Annual Christmas Lighting Contest, in Mckinleyville, CA! Last year the idea came to light when Keith Ownsbey pitched the idea in a local Facebook Group. Quickly several members from the community came forward to offer their help in creating and organizing the contest materials. Over 80 people joined the first contest, several won awards donated by local sponsors.

In partnership with the Mckinleyville Lions Club, Keith Ownsbey signed everyone up and rounded up the sponsors for the 2nd contest. I volunteered to make navigational maps for spectators to see on their mobile phones. Keith arranged for secret judges to come from out of the area, and when this is all over we'll have three winners for three different categories again! The categories are Best Inflatables, Best Decorated, and Best Light Show.

Everything you need to know about the contest can be found on the Maps Page provided by Anthony DeLuca through Rhapsodic Global, and the contest's Facebook page. View the Maps Page for more information about prizes, sponsors, and learn how to navigate the 2nd Mckinleyville Annual Christmas Lighting Contest with Google Maps on your phone! Please be sure to practice safe driving, remember there may be others on foot or sharing the road and enjoying the show.
