Holiday Magic

2023 Fountain Square Holiday Magic Winner

We are thrilled to announce the winners of our inaugural Holiday Magic decorating contest, Mark and Ken Clarke! Christmas is their favorite holiday, and it shows! When asked about this year’s decor, Ken said, “When we walked into this house, I remember thinking, ‘this is going to be a fun house to decorate.’” Congratulations to the Clarkes! As first place winners, they’ll enjoy gift cards from Sam's Silver Circle and Fountain Square Theatre Building . We can’t wait to see what they come up with next year. Thank you to everyone who participated! We had some great entries this year and are already planning ways to expand the contest in 2024.

2023 Fountain Square Holiday Magic

The FSNA is thrilled to invite you to the festive 2023 Fountain Square Holiday Magic event! Embrace the winter spirit and deck your halls to impress. Share a photo of your beautifully adorned home for a chance to win fabulous prizes, including a yard sign to showcase your achievement, (sur)prizes from local businesses, and more – not to mention local fame and bragging rights!


All Fountain Square residents are eligible to participate in the contest. Feel free to submit photos showcasing either or both your interior and exterior holiday decorations. 

Please note, businesses and current board members of FSNA are not eligible to enter.

Decorations should be mindful not to obstruct any public safety equipment or pathways. We encourage family-friendly displays; any submissions deemed discriminatory, political, or unsuitable for a general audience (PG13 and below) will be disqualified.

The winner will be announced during the festive season and will receive (1) a unique yard sign celebrating your win, (2) a feature in the Urban Times under the Fountain Square column, and (3) additional (sur)prizes!
