Xmas Lights Com­pe­ti­tion gears up for an­other year

Style Magazine - - Contents -

With Christ­mas spirit in full swing and judg­ing un­der way for the win­ners of this year’s Christ­mas Lights Com­pe­ti­tion, one can­not help but sing along to the Beach Boys when they say:

The houses turn on their Christ­mas lights at night; it’s worth the wait the whole year through just to make happy some­one like you.

And, as is the case with the Beach Boys, out­grow­ing Christ­mas Day (or the lead–up to it) is not an op­tion.

For the 30 en­trants in this year’s com­pe­ti­tion, Christ­mas is a time to share the joy.

What bet­ter way to do that than light­ing up houses and of­fice build­ings through­out Toowoomba?

Ev­ery night un­til Christ­mas Eve, be­tween 6.30pm and 9.30pm, lights will be shin­ing from ev­ery nook and cranny of the prop­er­ties en­tered into the com­pe­ti­tion.

This year’s judges will choose win­ners for each of the five classes — best dec­o­rated home, run­ner–up best dec­o­rated home, first–time en­trant, best neigh­bour­hood, and best na­tiv­ity dis­play.

The com­pe­ti­tion, pre­sented by Betta Home Liv­ing, will be judged on cre­ativ­ity and theme, over­all vis­ual ap­peal, the va­ri­ety of colour and dec­o­ra­tions used, and the de­gree of dif­fi­culty (or tech­ni­cal skill) brought to bear by the con­tes­tants.

The win­ners will be an­nounced in The Chron­i­cle on Satur­day, De­cem­ber 15, and will share in a to­tal prize pool of $2600.

Re­mem­ber to grab your copy of The Chron­i­cle on Thurs­day, De­cem­ber 08, for a handy map light­ing the way to each en­trant’s prop­erty.

Take a drive this De­cem­ber and share in the spirit of Christ­mas.
