Y105 wants to extend a big congratulations to Dan Harry Jr, our big winner of the 2022 "Light Up the Tri-States" contest! Dan's photo was voted by your staff as the stand-out in our contest (a very tough call, I'll add). As a result, he stopped by our offices and picked up his $500 cash prize, courtesy of Finnin Kia!

Dan came to our offices dressed to impress in his Christmas garb. Take a look at the photo he submitted to our "Light Up the Tri-States Contest!"

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.

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!
