Council's Christmas Light And Merry Mailbox Competition Back For 2022
Thursday, 17 Nov 2022Griffith City Council’s annual Christmas light competition and Merry Mailbox Competition is back, to add Christmas cheer across the City.
Griffith Mayor, Councillor Doug Curran is encouraging residents to register their homes for the popular competition as part of the Glow2680 program, ensuring their home can not only be included in a map, but can be considered for the Mayor’s Choice Award and the People’s Choice Award and the Merry Mailbox category now in its second year.
“I encourage everyone to consider decorating their homes and mailboxes for the Christmas season,” said Councillor Curran.
“We will provide an online map so that residents and visitors can explore the lights during the festive season at their own pace - no matter how big or small your Christmas display is, I would encourage you to head to our website and register,” added Councillor Curran.
The Merry Mailbox category was added to the program last year to encourage more people to get involved across the region.
“We realise that not everyone is able to decorate their homes on a grand scale, this way you can still add Christmas cheer in a smaller way,” added Councillor Curran.
The Glow2680 launch once again joins with the Griffith Rotary Christmas Carnival this year on Friday 2 December – this is when we will officially turn on the lights in Banna Avenue and Memorial Gardens.
“With approximately 22 plane trees being lit up, the giant walk-through bauble with fairy lights, shooting stars and archway back, it will be an incredible display for our community and visitors to enjoy,” he said.
You can register your home or mailbox online at www.griffith.nsw.gov.au/FOLregister
Council will also be creating a Christmas Calendar of Events which will include items such as the 2022 Carols by Candlelight being held on Saturday, 10 December.
To add your event visit www.glow2680.com.au or for more information about the Christmas Light and Merry Mailbox competition, please contact Council’s Corporate Communications Officer, Naomi Stephens on 1300 176 077.
