It’s Christmas Lights Time!

Tablelands Regional Council’s (TRC) Christmas Lights Competition is on again!

Mayor Rod Marti is looking forward to seeing the festive spirit reflected in light displays on houses, in gardens and across streets in the region.

‘Join the Christmas cheer by decorating your home and garden, and nominating for our competition.

‘You can even get together with your neighbours and nominate your street for the prestigious best street award,’ he said.

‘The competition is open to all homes and streets in the TRC region and nominations close 5pm Monday 5 December.

‘We’ll be judging 7–9pm Thursday 8 and Friday 9 December and there will be first, second and third place prizes in both categories.

‘We’ll share a list of the participating houses and streets so you can follow the Tablelands Christmas Lights Trail across the community.

‘For the first time we’re also running a People’s Choice award.

Vote for your favourite home between 4pm Monday 12 and 4pm Wednesday 14 December.

‘Thanks to The Express for sponsoring this event,” said Mayor Marti.

Participants are asked to be considerate of others and ensure lights are turned off by 10pm each night.
