In each episode, four families from all around the country with over-the-top displays compete to win the coveted Light Fight trophy and a $50,000 prize, with a total of $300,000 given away for the season. Along with the incredible displays, this season also features the first-ever neighbors vs. neighbors episode, where side-by-side neighbors team up to compete against other side-by-side neighbors in a doubly epic battle of the bulbs!
