    Take in Frederick’s most festive homes during this tour featuring an array of outdoor Holiday decorations!  From family-friendly cheer and homes fit for ole St. Nick, to classic touches that evoke the nostalgia of yesteryear, the Light Up Frederick! Holiday Decorations Tour & Contest sponsored by Woodsboro Bank will highlight the best-dressed homes in the City of Frederick!

    This socially distant tour allows participants to admire each home from the safety of the sidewalk or their vehicles.  Please refrain from entering the homeowners’ lawns.  Masks are required when maintaining a social distance of six-feet or more is not possible.

    Please note that homes will be decorated and lit December 5th through 12th from 5 – 9 PM each evening.


    Your ticket purchase confers one vote to be cast for your favorite home on the tour!  Will the grandly lit trees earn your vote?  Or, do you prefer more whimsical and jolly decorations?  Vote carefully…the home with the most votes will win a grand prize of $500!


    Tickets may be purchased for a suggested donation of $10 each, and are anticipated to go on sale mid-November. Ticket purchasers will receive a downloadable tour booklet which will include a map, a list of homes and a brief description of each home.

    Ticket revenue will support both Celebrate Frederick and Sophie and Madigan’s Playground. Sophie and Madigan’s Playground’s mission is to honor the lives of Sophie and Madigan Lillard by building a memorial playground, which has recently broken ground, and provide opportunities for children and their families to play, learn and create lifelong memories together.
