We just wanted to give Hopatcong Residents a final reminder that the Hopatcong Christmas Decorating Contest forms are due tomorrow December 10, 2020. Currently, we have almost 40 entries and we want to surpass last year’s 50 participates.

Help spread the joy across our community during this 2020 year, which is greatly needed with the unique challenges of this year. We will be sharing photos of the homes online and driving maps to make sure everyone can see your small or large presentation of holiday spirit.

Special thanks to our Sponsors for this Event:

Special thanks to the local businesses that have stepped forward to help make the second annual contest continue. This is all about our residents, and our local businesses.

The event that everyone loved last year, is on again this year thanks to the creators and sponsors. Last year we had 50 entries that walked away with a portion of the $3,000 prize pool. As we launch this program in 2020 we want to double the number, as everyone is ready for that happy smile they get when they view your decorations (Large or Small).
