The Mountlake Terrace Holiday Lights Contest



MLTnews is teaming up with the Red Onion this holiday season to make sure Mountlake Terrace has the best holiday lights displays possible.

MLT Holiday Lights Map

In the coming days we will be putting together a Mountlake Terrace Holiday Lights map that will guide you around our city to the best holiday lights displays. The map will be available online at and at the Red Onion.

We need you, MLTnews readers, to tell us where the best displays will be. Whether it’s the whole neighborhood or just a single house gone overboard with decorations, we want to know. If you have a house/neighborhood to add to the map, click here to fill out the form or *pick up a form at the Red Onion.

The first version of the MLT Holiday Lights Map will come out early next week. We will update the map as we become aware of more displays.

MLT Holiday Lights Contest

To further encourage MLT residents to go all out with their holiday decorations, MLTnews and the Red Onion are putting some prizes in to the mix. From now until December 13, we will be taking nominations for the best holiday lights display for a single home/business. From the 14th-20th we will open up voting and you will decide who has the best holiday lights display in Mountlake Terrace.

The following prizes will be awarded:

  • Grand Prize: $150 cash (to help you pay your electricity bill)
  • 2nd Place: $50 Gift Card to the Red Onion
  • 3rd Place: $25 Gift Card to the Red Onion

We’re looking forward to seeing Mountlake Terrace get festive for the holidays so get those lights up and submit your home or neighborhood for the map and contest here or *pick up a form at the Red Onion.

* Forms will be available at the Red Onion soon. Until then, fill out the form online here.


  1. What a fun idea!!!! I have not seen very many homes as of yet with lots of light in MLT but I will keep an eye out for some.
