Living in Rochester is a great experience in itself, but it’s the people and the opportunities that make it the best place to be.

**We are not currently taking anymore submissions for the November Theme contest. The top five Rochester stories have been selected, and it’s now up to you to vote for your favorite. Read them here!**

The story theme for November is The Big, Bright Light Show! Share your best Rochester story that occurred under the beautiful light display Downtown! What were you thinking and who were you with that made it special? This could be anything from an experience on the town or a family tradition to drive around the lights.

Stories for November must be submitted by November 25, 2015, at 11:59 PM. I Love Rochester will then present the top five stories to be voted on by I Love Rochester fans. Voting runs November 30 – December 17 until 11:59 PM on our blog.


To submit your story, simply complete the form to the right. By submitting your story, you give us permission to post your story and shared photo(s) on our website, social channels, and on I Love Rochester‘s Festival of Trees item*.

Thanks in advance for your contribution!

*The 2015 Festival of Trees is a holiday spectacular happening November 20-22 that features everything from trees to gingerbread houses donated by the Metro Detroit community. The proceeds benefit The Big, Bright Light Show, and I Love Rochester’s theme this year is our favorite thing–Rochester! We thought it fitting to use photos from our very own community–with your permission, of course!
