What is Fa La La La Lights?

Coppell’s Holiday Parade and Tree Lighting event has been an amazing tradition for the Coppell community for many years. Last year, we decided to bring the celebration to you by hosting our first ever lights decorating contest! The contest was so popular that we had to bring it back! Coppell residents and businesses are invited to celebrate with us by decorating homes, yards, or storefronts for our annual holiday lights competition. Show your holiday spirit by adorning your space with lights and other festive décor. Unleash your creativity and bring a smile to your friends and neighbors by showing us your holiday best!
