People are invited to record a video of themselves, their family or a group of their friends at their favorite downtown display and post it on Light Up Downtown -- or on their Instagram page, using the hashtag #SAMayorLUDT.

You can vote once a day in each category.

“I encourage all San Antonians to come downtown to enjoy the beautiful holiday decorations and atmosphere,” Mayor Ron Nirenberg said. “Thousands of residents and guests come downtown to look at the lights that grace the River Walk every year. The Light Up Downtown Holiday Contest brings this magic up to the street level and encourages festive lighting displays throughout downtown.”

Winners will be recognized by Nirenberg.

The displays will be lit through early January.
