Tacky Light Run Contests

When it comes to the Tacky Light Run, it doesn’t matter who’s the fastest…we just want to see who has the most holiday spirit! So dig out your grandmother’s favorite holiday sweater, charge those battery packs, and buy all the garland you can afford, because the competition for these award categories is as serious as Santa!

If you would like to participate in the costume contest, you must check in between 5pm and 6 p.m. at the Costume Contest Check In tent in Mid-Lothian Mines Park. Winners will be selected and awards will be mailed in the week following the run.
