Holiday Lights

Bright Lights BIG County


Back for a second year, the Bright Lights Big County: Holiday Lights Crowdsourced Map is one of the best ways to get into the holiday spirit. This unique, interactive tool allows residents to easily share and enjoy all the beautiful, glimmering lights that fill the streets of Orange County at this time of year.

Whether you want to show off your own decked-out property or visit the best holiday light displays in our community, the Orange County Property Appraiser’s Office (OCPA) has just what you need!

How does it work?

OCPA invites residents to show off their own decorated property by uploading a photo of their home or business. OCPA adds submissions to the map, which residents and visitors can use to see the best holiday light displays in their area.

Here’s what you need to do:

To participate, homeowners and business owners can submit a high-quality photo of the decorated property at night. Property-owners can then visit the crowdsourced map, click on the “Submit Holiday Lights Display” button, and provide all the required information. Finally, simply agree to the terms and conditions, and click “SUBMIT.” OCPA will review the photo, verify the address, and add it to the map within one to two business days.

Before loading up the car with family and friends to look at festive light displays, check out the OCPA Bright Lights Big County: Holiday Lights Crowdsourced Map. Make a note of which neighborhoods, homes, and businesses you’d like to see before you head out, and be sure to check back throughout the holiday season, as more decorated locations update daily.

The map will go live in early November and will remain accessible until the new year. Whether you have taken the time to decorate your home or business, or just enjoy looking at holiday lights, OCPA hopes all Orange County residents will find the crowdsourced map enjoyable.
