Each year, as we "Light Up the Tri-States," it's fun to reflect on the true meaning of the season. It's a time to spend with family and friends. It's an opportunity to spend time with those that are alone. Christmas is all these things and more. 

That's what this month's "Light Up the Tri-States" contest has been all about. The lights help us remember that even when it's very dark; beautiful things can come out of it.

That's why we want to congratulate our big winner Dan Harry Jr, winner of the 2022 "Light Up the Tri-States" contest! We also want to extend a BIG thank you to our friends at Finnin Kia, who helped make this contest possible!

It's the most wonderful time of the year, and there's also no better time to show the world how much you love the holiday season. That's why we've compiled a HUGE gallery of all of our submissions this year! Our neighbors in Dubuque, Galena, and the Tri-States went above and beyond in decking the halls and making the area shine even during the witching hour!

Scroll through and see all the light displays that help beautify the Tri-States during this time of year! Keep it tuned to Y105 too because we are not done with contests! As of today, it's the kickoff to the "Very Vinyl Holidays" contest. 30 days. 30 vinyl records. 30 winners. One winner each day. You can easily opt-in for a chance to win a vinyl record from one of your favorite artists here!
