8th Annual Belltown Sparkles Contest Starts Now – Decorate!

Belltown sparkles this time of year.

The 8th annual Light Up Belltown Contest gives local businesses and residents a chance to show off their holiday spirit in a bright competition.  Sponsored by the Belltown Business Association, Belltown Sparkles aims to inspire the community to bring light to the dark days of December.

The winning building will be decided upon by a panel of judges and win $750 to go towards the Belltown building community fund for residential building or business.

DATE/TIME:  On Friday, December 15th join members of the Belltown Business Association Board and the rest of the community to view all entries.

Meet-up at the Belltown Community Center at 6:15 pm for light appetizers before the walking tour with Santa Claus and holiday tunes by the Beaconettes – prior Figgie Pudding winner.

PHOTO CONTEST:  Belltown Sparkles will also include a holiday photo contest until December 15th. Photos of the neighborhood’s interior and exterior decorations should be emailed to along with the picture’s location and photographer’s contact information so you can post the photos on and/or social media. The winning photo will receive $25.

And, don’t forget to check out the winter lights in Bell Street Park.

Happy holidays, Belltown!
