The most wonderful time of the year is here! We asked you to send us a photo of your holiday light display this year and you did not disappoint.

Residents all throughout eastern Iowa channeled their inner Clark Griswald and strung up hundreds of lights, inflatables, and more this season. We wanted to show off all of the hard work and spread some holiday cheer with our Light Up Eastern Iowa contest sponsored by the HaZy HideAway. We asked listeners to send us a photo in our app or their magical displays for a chance at winning some cash. It is the season of giving after all. We collected listener photos from November 15 through December 19 and got to see some of the best and brightest displays in the area. Now, we have a winner to congratulate, and gift with $1,000.

Congratulations to Dana Espinosa of Cedar Rapids! Dana's holiday light display, at 10,000 Hall Road in Cedar Rapids, was chosen as the best in eastern Iowa. Her year just got a whole lot merrier too, as she will be gifted with $1,000! Dana was very excited when we told her she'd won. She even mentioned that with the cash, she can buy more Christmas lights! That's the holiday spirit. See Dana's display below.
