CHRISTMAS IS IN THE AIR

Griffith City Council is excited to present the annual Christmas light competition for 2019.

Residents are being encouraged to register their homes for the popular competition, ensuring their home can not only be included in the route, but can be considered for the Mayor’s Choice Award and the People’s Choice Award.

Griffith Mayor, Councillor John Dal Broi said residents can register online at www.griffith.nsw.gov.au/FOLregister to be part of the competition.  

“Last year we had more than 60 properties register – more than double 2017 - with many more decorating their homes for the Christmas season,” said Councillor Dal Broi.  

“Over the last three years Council has provided buses for community members to tour the Christmas lights of Griffith, and we are excited to once again provide this service every Friday night up until Christmas.”  

The Christmas Lights Bus Tours kick off Friday 6 December and is available only by booking in advance at eventbrite.com.au and searching for Christmas Lights.  

“No matter how big or small your Christmas display is, I would encourage you to head to our website and register – residents enjoy boarding a bus or using our interactive map to see what houses are lit up,” added Councillor Dal Broi.  

“In addition, every home that registers will receive 2 tickets to Star Bowling and 2 $5 vouchers to Family Fun Land with thanks to our sponsors, Griffith City Cinemas.”

You can register your home online at www.griffith.nsw.gov.au/FOLregister
