Who has the best “decked” house in Dallas and Hiram?
According to users who voted in our annual Deck the House contest, the Felix home had the best holiday lights in Dallas-Hiram Patch. Their display boasts an estimated 100,000 lights and 244 animated computer channels.
If the family's name sounds familiar, it's likely because their home was selected last year as Dallas-Hiram's Deck the House winner. It then was selected as one of the 24 finalists from across the Patch nation. The home was almost popular enough to win Paulding County Schools the contest's $100,000 grand prize—it placed second in the nationwide voting.
It remains to be seen how far the Felix home will go this year—we had tons of national entries in this year’s contest, and in our quest to find the most over-the-top holiday decorations in the country, we’ve seen everything from a life-size Santa to holiday lights so bright they could blind the neighbors.
We loved showcasing everyone’s holiday spirit, but Deck the House isn’t over yet. We’re still looking for the one home so spectacularly decorated that it could be the national grand prize winner of our contest.
We will choose 24 finalists from all our entries across the country. From Tuesday until Dec. 27, you'll be able to vote for your favorite and that person could win $100,000 for his or her local school district.
All you have to do is visit this page to browse a gallery of the finalists and cast your vote Tuesday. On Dec. 28, we’ll announce the grand prize winner of our Deck the House contest.
So now’s your chance to tell us who has the best “decked” house in the country. Let us know by voting for your favorite beginning Tuesday.
