Deck the halls with Christ­mas light­ing

Dalby Herald - - NEWS - Ebony Graveur ebony.graveur@dal­by­her­ald.com.au

GET out your lights and start plan­ning a de­sign for your jolly Christ­mas palace be­cause it’s that time of year again.

This December, the Christ­mas lights com­pe­ti­tion will be hosted by 1 Prop­erty Cen­tre.

Owner Mark Vadasz said that the event was some­thing a lot of peo­ple en­joyed.

“It’s some­thing peo­ple like and I wanted to keep the tra­di­tion go­ing,” he said.

Nathan Bert­ing of 1 Prop­erty Cen­tre is a Christ­mas lights aficionado him­self.

“I know when I used to do my big dis­play it was al­ways un­der sur­veil­lance,” Mr Bert­ing said.

“I would al­ways see peo­ple out the front, like chil­dren danc­ing.”

“We think it will be re­ally well re­ceived,” Mr Bert­ing said. “We’re hop­ing that there will be a lot more, given the in­creased prize money.”

To en­ter, con­tes­tants are re­quired to self-nom­i­nate, ei­ther at the of­fice, or via the Face­book page.

Un­like past events where vot­ing in­volved a lot of driv­ing, vot­ers are able to sub­mit their verdict via the Face­book page in re­sponse to the pho­tos sub­mit­ted by en­trants.

There are three cash prizes: first, sec­ond and third, each rang­ing from $200 to $500.

1 Prop­erty Cen­tre will also be throw­ing a party at the end of the com­pe­ti­tion to an­nounce the win­ners.
