Get out the fairy lights and put up your best Christmas decorations for the neighbourhood to see and you could be in with a chance to win some great prizes.
Blacktown City Council is again hosting the ‘Decorate Your Home Christmas Lights Competition’ and this year they have a total prize pool of $4,500 on offer.
The competition is open to all residents of the Blacktown Local Government area who want to get in the Christmas spirit by decorating their home, townhouse or villa.
According to Blacktown City Mayor Stephen Bali MP the competition has become a tradition for the city and he has urged entrants to connect with their neighbours to demonstrate unique, contemporary and individual displays.
“Whether you are entering for the first time or you are a dedicated yearly supporter there are heaps of chances to share in the prize pool,” he said.
There are 13 individual categories in the competition, which includes an overall winner as well an acknowledgement of the city’s best street.
The Best Street Title encourages neighbours to get together in the spirit of Christmas to create a festive atmosphere for the street and the rest of the community to enjoy. To be eligible for this title you need to have at least 3 decorated properties involved, so start chatting to your neighbours!
