ELLICOTT CITY, MD – Howard County Executive Calvin Ball has launched “HoCo Holiday Lights,” a new online mapping resource for residents and visitors to locate residential and commercial holiday light displays. The listing includes an address, photos, description of the display, display dates and hours, and any special instructions. The website is publicly driven and will be updated as more residents and owners register their homes and businesses. To register your home, business, or community holiday lights display, click here.   

For many of our residents, it’s a beloved holiday tradition to walk or drive around our neighborhoods and view the festive holiday lights. This exciting new tool allows residents and visitors alike to plan a route around Howard County and admire the beautiful displays of lights. It also provides an opportunity for our neighbors to flaunt their joyful decorations, and our residents to support local businesses who have also joined in on the holiday spirit.
