The holidays are a special time in the City of La Feria. Each year residents and business people decorate their homes and storefronts in an effort to bring the spirit of the season to the town. Visitors are encouraged to drive around the city to see the seasonal displays that have been created for everyone’s enjoyment.

The La Feria Events Committee and the City of La Feria sponsor several contests at this time of the year, including the Home & Yard Decorating Contest and the Winter Visitor Park Decorating Contest as well as a contest for the best large painted Christmas cards created by the students of La Feria School District, usually on display at the City of La Feria Municipal Complex along Business 83. The Business Window Decorating Contest, sponsored by the La Feria Chamber of Commerce, is also held during this time.
