We like to think that Bluffton’s many shops create the best Christmas decorated downtown of any small town in Ohio.
In addition to the Bluffton Area Chamber of Commerce’s residential lighting contest, a separate contest takes place for 41 downtown businesses.
The downtown contest operates differently from the residential contest. Competition downtown involves any business that has Christmas garland purchased two years ago through the chamber garland project.

CONTEST JUDGING TAKES PLACE WEDNESDAY, DEC. 4
It's not necessarily the number of lights on your lawn - it's the holiday feeling your display evokes.
This year's Bluffton residential lighting contest offers several new judging catetories and "Small is Beautiful" is one of those categories.
Thanks to a $450 donation from First National Bank, Bluffton’s residential holiday lighting contest prize money totals $800 this year. First National’s donation is assisted courtesy of Kasasa, its rewards checking account partner.
