Decorate your home in Port Coquitlam for the holidays, win gift cards

Port Coquitlam is running a contest for 12 days in December.
Port Coquitlam residents can win $150 in gift cards for decorating the outside of their homes with Christmas lights.

Lighting up your home in Port Coquitlam for the holidays might just earn you some extra money for Christmas shopping.

From Dec. 1 to 12, the city is offering a daily prize of a $75 gift card from any licensed Port Coquitlam business to residents who submit a night-time photo of their decorated home. 

The winners of the 12 daily random draws will also receive a matching $75 gift card from a downtown merchant courtesy of the Port Coquitlam Downtown Business Improvement Association (BIA).

A similar promotion last year attracted more than 120 entrants, according to a news release from the city.

The contest is for Port Coquitlam residents only and each address can submit one entry over the course of the 12-day contest period.

Photos can be uploaded to a special website, shared on social media with the hashtag #WinterInPoCo and #WinterInTheCity or by tagging the city on Twitter or Instagram (@CityofPoCo) or on Facebook (@portcoquitlam).
