Nov. 19, 2014 - For the second year, the San Francisco Travel Association is encouraging businesses and neighborhoods throughout the city to decorate creatively with outdoor lights for the holidays by holding a Neighborhood Holiday Lights Competition

“We are supporting the city’s neighborhoods and small businesses by bringing more attention to the beauty of San Francisco’s many different districts during this holiday season,” said Joe D’Alessandro, San Francisco Travel president and CEO. “This competition will help attract more visitors to local businesses.”

The competition is open to merchant groups and individual retail businesses located in San Francisco. Entries will be accepted through Dec. 16 at the Neighborhood Lights Competition page. Each entry must be accompanied by a photo of the decorations. There is no fee to enter. 

Entries will be posted on San Francisco Travel’s website, www.sanfrancisco.travel, where visitors to the site can vote for their favorite lighting displays.  Voting will be open Dec. 9-18 and the winners will be announced on Dec. 22.

The displays with the most online votes will win $5,000 in cash and prizes.  The Neighborhood Merchant Group Prize is $2,500 and a one-year partnership with San Francisco Travel valued at $750.  The Individual Business Prize is $1,000 with a one-year San Francisco Travel partnership. 

The Union Street Association was the winner of the inaugural competition in 2013.
