Merry & Bright

Christmas Lights Contest

$1,000 Cash Prize

This holiday season, Able Insurance Agency continues its tradition of spreading cheer throughout our community with our 2nd Annual Christmas Lights Contest.

We can’t think of a better way than with big, bright and festive outdoor decorations! In our "Merry & Bright” Christmas Lights Contest, registered homes will compete for a grand prize of $1,000 for the best decorated home in our community.

We will create a map of all of the registered homes so friends, family, coworkers and more can go out and see who is in the spirit this year. So, we invite you to get out your giant inflatables and your heaps of Christmas lights, and deck the halls.

Maybe you love a classic Christmas theme or really want to bring out your inner Clark Griswald! Nothing is off limits! We are so excited to see you brighten your neighborhood and spread a little cheer at a time it’s needed most!
