Homeowners in Portsmouth NH – get ready for the Portsmouth Citywide Annual Holiday Decorating Contest!
Our annual Holiday Decorating Contest began several years ago, and it’s
a fun way to help celebrate this beautiful holiday season, and to show
off our pride in our neighborhoods and in our wonderful seaside city.
Whatever your holiday celebration includes – Hanukkah, Christmas,
Kwanzaa, New Year’s – show your spirit and good will in your home’s
outside decorations! The more, the merrier, and what fun it is to
get together with family and/or friends and tour around town to see all
the decorated homes. You just can’t help but smile, inside and
We already have some beautifully decorated homes around town – if yours
isn’t done yet, hurry up so you can be part of this fun citywide
Neighborhoods around the town will be participating in this contest,
with each neighborhood submitting their ‘top 3’ picks from their
respective neighborhoods by Saturday morning, the 15th. These
picks will then be given to the Citywide Neighborhood Committee for
juding, which will take place on Monday, December 17th.
The final citywide winners will be announced on Wednesday, December
19th, by Portsmouth Mayor Steve Marchand and our incoming Mayor Tom
Ferrini. The announcements will be made via radio, Portsmouth
Community Radio Channel 106.1, and in the Portsmouth Herald the next morning.
