Your 2017 Light Up South Milwaukee Winners!


UPDATE:  What an amazing response to our first-ever Light Up South Milwaukee holiday lights awards program!

More than a dozen judges – including Beautification Committee members, family and friends – took to the streets of South Milwaukee this past Saturday to tour and judge each of the 49 entries.   Seven winners were chosen; each of these houses received at least nine scores of “five” from 12 judges!  


And the winners are…
1)  806 Lake Drive
2) 1306 Marquette Avenue
3) 1720 Manitoba Avenue
4) 1817 Edgewood Avenue
5) 1333 Columbia Avenue
6) 2501 8th Avenue
7) 3701 6th Avenue


We have compiled a list of the addresses of each home that received at least one “five” score from our judges – including a list of seven “honorable mentions”, addresses that received at least five “five” rating. If you your interested in taking your own holiday lights tour, check it out here! 



This year, Santa’s Elves will be looking to honor the South Milwaukee homes and businesses with the best outdoor holiday lights displays.  Winners will receive small cash prizes, a yard sign, and recognition on the city website and Facebook pages – and be the envy of your block, and city.


Beautification Committee members will judge entries for first and second place in the following categories:

  • Griswold – You light up the whole neighborhood.
  • Classical – Traditional decorations from holidays past.
  • Themed – You have a running theme happening with your lighted display.

You can enter more than one address.  The more, the merrier!

All entries must be submitted by December 15th.  Judging will occur starting December 16th.

Winners will be notified by the contact information provided by the Facebook submission or the contact information provided on the entry form.

Let’s deck South Milwaukee streets with holiday cheer!
