25 Glowing Years of Family Tradition

Let's GET LIT Airdrie!

The Airdrie Festival of Lights is Celebrating our 25th Season, and we are looking to make our entire City simply GLOWing! In partnership with the Airdrie Chamber of Commerce, and the Airdrie Parades Committee, we are asking for homes, front doors, apartment balconies, businesses, and anything else you can think of, to be lit up with lights. Using your postal code only, we’ll be plotting locations on a map on our website, so those visiting the Festival of Lights can extend their time, by driving around to all these EXTRA GLOWing displays. This map won't be live until we open on December 1st, which is when we'll need you to Get Your Glow On! (Turn on those lights) Let’s show everyone how bright Airdrie can shine!

The Rules;
There are two categories, one for residents, and one for businesses.
You must register in advance to be entered into the prize draws.
You must include your name, mailing address, phone number, and email address.
All registrants will be emailed a printable sign (in pdf), that they can then print off and place in their window or storefront, showcasing WE GOT LIT!

Starting November 15, we want you to start posting your light displays to our Social Media platforms (Facebook - Twitter - Instagram)! You must tag all three of us, the Airdrie Festival of Lights, the Airdrie Chamber of Commerce, and Airdrie Parades, with the hashtags #ShareTheGlow, and #Airdrie. If you do, and you’re already registered, you’ll get an extra entry into the draws!
Registration closes December 15 at midnight, Contest ends, December 31st at 9:00 pm (when the AFOLS closes for the 25th season). Winners will be announced by January 4, 2021

NOTE - This isn’t a competition for best decorated, or fanciest lights, because we believe every single light to "GET LIT" contributes to Airdrie's overall GLOW!
