Festive Lights and Decorations Competition 2019

What is the Festive Lights and Decorations Competition? 

This is an annual friendly community competition which aims to spread festive cheer and friendly spirit throughout Hedland. Households in the Town of Port Hedland are encouraged to get involved by nominating in the categories of Best Display, Runner Up Best Display, Best Sustainable Display, and Peoples Choice. Maybe you're someone who always decks your house out with lights, or maybe this is your first time! One idea it to get together as a street and create the brightest street in town. This year's sponsors are Gold Sponsor Horizon Power.
