SILOAM SPRINGS, Arkansas — This year, the City of Siloam Springs (CSS) is hosting its first-ever citywide holiday decorating contest.

The contest will run from Dec. 1-17 and is open to all residents living within the city limits of Siloam Springs.

Contestants may enter for free by filling out the Deck the House Holiday Decorating Contest online form.

Once registered, the contestants' address will be placed on a Google map as a “pin” to allow holiday enthusiasts the opportunity to drive by and enjoy the décor. Contestants' names will not be listed.

The prize money will come from Main Street Siloam Springs thanks to the generosity of a holiday donor.
