It is -- officially -- the most wonderful time of the year. The time of year when it's ok to eat chocolate whenever you want (yeah!), people go out of their way to be nice to each other (double yeah!), and we celebrate traditions. In Schuyler County, we're all about traditions, and we're inviting you to join us. For decades, people have decorated for the holidays with lights. Experts say holiday lights and decorations help us bring back childhood memories. String lights add that touch of whimsy that gets everyone feeling a bit nostalgic. Holiday Lights - Schuyler Style is all about whimsy and nostalgia. But, to make it happen ... we need you!


Voting opens on December 10 and runs through January 10. We are officially inviting you to grab your favorite person (or persons!) and head to Schuyler County to vote in our second annual Holiday Lights - Schuyler Style. Follow our map to check out the festive, spirited holiday light decorations displayed from one end of Schuyler County to the other and on both sides of Seneca Lake. Our participants are competing for prizes and bragging rights in this contest, but ... it's just possible that the real winners are the voters! Make a new memory this year. Make plans to jingle your way across our peaceful countryside and cast your votes for the Best Decorated Home, Best Decorated Business, Best Decorated Non-Profit, and Best Decorated Farm. You can vote online or download a ballot and return to our office. Check out this interactive map (or use the addresses on the paper ballot!).
