After several festive days of judging the city’s merriest homes, suburbs and businesses, the best entrants and winners have been confirmed for the City of Ipswich Christmas Lights Competition.
Ipswich Mayor Teresa Harding said it was fantastic to see hundreds of homes, streets and businesses getting into the festive spirit with unmissable Christmas lights displays across the city.
“Congratulations to this year’s winners as well as all those who entered the competition and went to great lengths to create Christmas displays that have transformed Ipswich streets and shopfronts into merry wonderlands,” Mayor Harding said.
“It is always a heart-warming experience visiting communities all over Ipswich and seeing the joy on people’s faces as they explore our city to enjoy countless unique Christmas displays.”
Economic and Industry Development Committee Chairperson Councillor Nicole Jonic said 73 homes, businesses and streets entered a festive display in this year’s Christmas lights competition.
“By decorating their homes, yards, decks, roofs and fences, entrants in the competition help share the season’s wonderful spirit and colour with our community and visitors to Ipswich,” Cr Jonic said.
“Across our festive city, families will be able to enjoy some of South East Queensland’s largest, most creative and colourful Christmas lights displays in their driveways, suburbs and shopfronts.”
Free entries for the competition closed 28 November, and winning entrants shared in over $8,000 worth of cash and prizes.
