Nixa neighbors unite in a friendly competition to see who has the best Christmas decorations.

Joy Bray, owner of Gateway Real Estate, and Chris Russell, president and CEO of the Nixa Chamber of Commerce, have teamed up to spread some Christmas cheer. They have integrated the Tour of Nixa Lights into the city of Nixa app, Experience Nixa.

Bray resurrected the Tour of Nixa Lights, a map that showed Christmas-decorated homes from willing participants, in 2019. With the success from last year, she decided to keep it going this year and turn it into a competition with prizes. The full story is on OzarksFirst's website.
