Should you have any issues with the tracking form please email We will then create a map of all the streets that include displays so the community can drive around and vote on their favorites. We will not put your specific address out there. Only houses within the city limit of Manchester will be included in the map, but anyone is welcome to submit

We ask that all displays stay up  May 5th - 11th.

We will use the pictures provided to allow the community to vote and comment on their favorites via Facebook, prizes will be awarded to the winners.
