Nanaimo 2013 Christmas Lights Winners

2013 Spirit of Christmas
Residential Light Up Winners 

Over the holidays be sure to grab a thermos of hot chocolate, plug the following addresses into the gps and head out for at least two nights to capture some of the magic of the season. Once again the Chamber of Commerce sponsors the Christmas Light Up contest and this years winners are sure to please young and old alike. The list has some perennial favourites and lots of newcomers as well.

Of course when you are out taking in these wonderful sights, you are sure to see many, many more that weren't in the contest as Nanaimo homes capture the Spirit of Christmas.

Note: according to a comment posted by a reader, 1420 Boundary Cresent didn't make the list much to their disappointment. I guess this can't possibly be a complete list of all entrants of course.



  1. you forgot my daugther's house 1420 Boundary Cres. So sad for them they spent a lot of time and energy on their home and were so excited to be entered. :( such a sad mistake.

  2. The house at 1420 Boundry Cres is amazing!

  3. I've mapped out as many as I could in Google Maps:

    South Nanaimo Lights:
    Central Nanaimo Lights:
    North Nanaimo Lights:

    Hope this helps others plan out routes! :)

  4. I agree that 1420 Boundary added more lights this year and it should be on that list!! I LOVE what they did with the trees!!!! Thank you to those owners, it's a joy to drive by your place! :)

  5. those links for the map don't work. help

  6. There's a house on Renata Lane (off Carlton, which is off of Turner) that has a great Nightmare Before Christmas display (with a couple Star Wars additions). Lights synched to music from Nightmare Before Christmas.

  7. No problem printing off the directions. Thank you and Merry Christmas!
