Vote for your favourite street, in Hope’s annual Christmas lights contest

Check out route maps and street names of the over 100 houses participating in the contest

With over 100 homes registering, when a few dozen or so normally do, the annual Christmas lights contest will have Hope shining extra bright this year.

Organizers have put out a list of participating streets, as well as route maps of the three areas of Hope, for people to take part in a COVID-19 safe tour of the lights. Residents are also invited to vote for their favourite street online at or by dropping off a ballot at the Hope visitors centre, with voting open until Dec. 27.

Homes on the following streets have been decked out for the contest:

Downtown Hope/Junction District: Allison Ave., Dewdney Ave., Douglas St., Fort St., Fraser Ave., Hope St., Park St., Queen St., Stuart St., Water Ave., Willow St., 4 Ave., 7 Ave.

Kawkawa Lake: Cottonwood Dr., Dogwood Dr., Gordon Dr., Kettle Valley Pl., Kettle Valley Pl., Mallard Dr., Mountain Ash Dr., Park Ave., Summer Rd., Swallow Pl.

Silver Creek: Beacon Rd., Flood Hope Rd., Marie St., Silverhope Rd.

The winning teams will each get a $150 Rona gift card, the three winners of the individual home category will get a gift basket sponsored by Communities in Bloom.

When viewing the lights, organizers ask that people avoid socializing or gathering in groups, even outside. And those who are voting shouldn’t enter anyone’s property. Also stick to your household bubble when you are out viewing the lights, whether in a vehicle or walking.

For those who may be from outside Hope and want to come view the lights, organizers are encouraging people not to engage in any non-essential travel.
