With 50 participants in this year’s annual Light Up Port Orange contest, residents had a lot of home holiday displays to choose from to cast their vote.
After much anticipation and excitement, the city of Port Orange Parks and Recreation Department released the list of homes on December 8, with the contest running from December 10 through December 19. Participating homes were required to turn on the lighting displays from 6 to 10 PM during this time for visitors to drive by and view.
Many homes went all out this year, with some featuring snowy dance parties on the last weekend of the competition, toy and charity drives, walk through displays with movie screenings, and even visits from Santa himself.

- Best of the Best
- Best Traditional

On December 21, the city announced the winners of the contest, with the featured homes listed and pictured below:

On December 22, Port Orange Mayor Don Burnette visited 1410 Breaks Way this morning to congratulate the winners of Light Up Port Orange’s Best of the Best category. The Riverside Cheermeisters and their popular display were also last year’s winners, and are celebrating the addition of a new family member this year.
The Merry Couple also placed a donation stand outside of their home so that residents of Port Orange had the opportunity to donate to a local charity, Operation Awesome Christmas. The city wished their congratulations to The Riverside Cheermeisters and Happy Holidays from Port Orange Parks & Recreation.
