Let's Light Up the Skyline this Festive Season

Published: Friday, 9 November 2018 at 1:38:58 PM

Households across Hedland are encouraged to get into the festive spirit by nominating in the Town of Port Hedland’s 2018 Festive Lights and Decorations Competition.

This event is made possible by Gold sponsor Horizon Power, and media sponsor The Northwest Telegraph.

This year, three categories will recognise displays defined by creativity, luminosity and extravagance which capture the festive season.

Mayor Camilo Blanco said the event was a highlight on the Hedland calendar.

“Everyone loves a good festive light display, especially the kids who get to see neighbourhood streets brightly lit up one time a year.

“I’d encourage streets to get together and see if they can create the brightest spot in Hedland!

“Nominees will be able to enter in the categories of Best South Display, Best Port Display, or Best Sustainable Display.

“The sustainable category recognises the importance of being mindful of our carbon footprint.

“All entrants will automatically go into the People’s Choice Award, which will be a great opportunity for residents to have their say on their favourites.

“In terms of the key dates to look out for, nominations close 5pm Friday 7 December and formal judging occurs on Tuesday 11 December and Wednesday 12 December.

“The People’s Choice Display Voting period will be open from Sunday 11 December to Tuesday 20 December.

“If you’re ready to nominate, click here to access the online nomination form now, and good luck!”
