Registration to be a tour stop is closed for 2020. We encourage you to learn about tour home requirements and consider participating next year. "Like" our Facebook page to keep updated on next year's deadlines.
What do tour homeowners and business owners do?
First, register as a tour stop by Nov. 29, 2020 on our Google form link below. Then, decorate the exterior of your home or business with Christmas lights and decorations. Go all out with as many lights as possible! Think "Clark Griswold"! Please light your home or business nightly at dark, from December 5 to 24, 2020. We will place a yard sign at your property near the street, which will include your text-to-vote code. Last, encourage your family and friends to vote for your stop!
Who will see my home?
We will put your address on our printed and digital event map distributed publicly. (We don't list homeowner or business names on the map.) Anyone can find your stop on the map and drive by to view your home or business. We ask that individuals not park in any driveways of our tour homes, but if you have street parking, someone may briefly park to view your home.
Is there a prize for best decorated stop?
Yes! Every home has a unique text-to-vote code. Individuals will text the code, and submit a donation of $2 or more to vote for their favorite home(s). Votes will be counted from Dec. 5 to 24, 2020. On Christmas Day, we'll check the votes, and the home with the most funds raised will be declared the winner. The winning home will receive a basket of gift cards, products and services donated by local businesses.
Where does the vote money go?
We are a volunteer-led event to benefit charities serving Mooresville, Indiana. All funds raised from our event will be distributed to our three chosen local nonprofits: Churches in Mission, Boys & Girls Club and Peace Restored. The vote funds go directly into an account at the Community Foundation of Morgan County - also a nonprofit - to keep our transactions transparent.
Will my address qualify if I live outside downtown Mooresville, IN?
Please email us at MooresvilleChristmasLightTour@gmail.com if you live at a Mooresville or Camby address and are unsure if you can participate. (Mostly those living far out in the country.) If you live farther outside of Mooresville, we may allow participation if there are a minimum of three homes participating in your neighborhood. We encourage you to invite your neighbors!
