Decorate your door for the Fourth of July!


Help your neighborhood celebrate the Fourth of July by entering the City of Lexington's door/mailbox decorating contest!

Due to ongoing restrictions on public gatherings, the downtown Lexington Fourth of July Festival has been canceled for 2020. While these events will be missed, the safety of our community is our highest concern. With that in mind, this year the City is introducing a new activity to engage and entertain the community – a door/mailbox decorating contest. Residents are encouraged to show their patriotic spirit by decorating their front door.

Households can submit a photo of their door/mailbox using the form below. The deadline to submit is 10 a.m. on Monday, June 29.

A panel of judges will pick the top four finalists. Mayor Linda Gorton will choose the overall winner. The winning household will receive a visit from the mayor and a swag bag from the City of Lexington.

So decorate your house door, apartment door, nursing home door or even your bedroom door, send us a picture and help Lexington celebrate the Fourth of July!


The contest begins on Monday, June 15. The deadline to submit is 10 a.m. on Monday, June 29.
