LAST CHANCE: Lighting up the town for Christmas

WITH Santa on the front lawn and coloured lights hanging across the roof, it really is beginning to look a lot like Christmas across the North Burnett.

Today is your last chance to nominate your residence or business in the North Burnett 2018 Christmas Lights competition.

North Burnett Regional Council invites residences and local business to decorate their homes, windows and gardens in the spirit of Christmas.

Christmas lights displays are judged according to their visual appeal, uniqueness, overall impact, safety, variety of decorations and tidiness.

All nominations for the free competition must be received by 4.30pm on Thursday December 6.

Judges plan to take to the streets to see the Christmas lights over the week from Monday December 10 to Friday December 14.

The best business with Christmas lights will receive $100 for first prize and $50 for second prize.

The best decorated residence will also receive $100, second place will receive $50, and the third prize is $25.

Nomination forms can be either downloaded from the North Burnett Regional Council website or collected from any of their customer service centres and libraries.

Those who are not interested in entering the competition, but would still like to include their residence in the list of Christmas lights around town may also fill out a form.
