The annual “Light Up North Bend” holiday lighting contest has completed its fourth year.
A team judged this event from the Parks and Economic Development commissions and the North Bend Downtown Foundation. They viewed numerous local light displays over the weekend of December 9th & 10th. These included music-synced VMA Division lights, themed Hollywood Division displays, and dazzling light setups in the Griswold Division.
The City of North Bend will share videos of the winning displays on its Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram throughout December. Everyone is invited to tour these festive lights until December 25th. You can download the map for this tour here.
The organizers express their gratitude to all 2023 Light Up North Bend contest participants for their imaginative and festive displays. Notably, the competition in the VMA Division was so close that two winners were announced.
