2020 Christmas Tour of Lights

Christmas Tour of Lights and Contest to Brighten Up Historic Waxahachie
December 4 – 19, 2020

An Exciting Holiday Lighting Contest Featuring Area Historic-Style Homes

Historic Waxahachie, Inc. announced that it will be hosting the Christmas Tour of Lights this year in place of its annual home tour. The voting period for the contest will run December 4-19, 2020. “We want to give back to our community,” explained Emily Glidewell-Finch, President of HWI, “But we also want to ensure the safety of everyone. After careful consideration, we decided to cancel the annual home tour and, instead, replace it with an opportunity to brighten the lives of our residents and bring in visitors.”

Historic Waxahachie, Inc., invites you to participate in a holiday lighting contest and driving tour of Waxahachie’s historic style homes by decorating their homes with festive décor and of course, lights! The contest is open to all residents whose homes are 50 years or older. Any homeowner who is interested in participating should make sure their address is visible. Onlookers will be the judges as they have the opportunity to vote. A special collector’s program book and ballot boxes will be located in participating Waxahachie shops and restaurants. A list of these locations will be posted as opening weekend draws closer. You will also be able to vote through the website at historicwaxahachie.com.


The community is encouraged to vote for their favorite light display by submitting a ballot or voting thru the website with their favorite home’s address.

The top three winners will receive cash prizes and voters will be entered for a gift basket drawing.

The Christmas Tour of Lights is made possible by sponsors Baylor Scott & White Hospital and Ellis County Title Company who are partners in lighting up the community and brightening the holiday season.
