Armadale…get ready to light up

There will be no holding back on the fairy lights next month, when local homes shine bright as part of the City of Armadale’s festive campaign to light up the lives of local families.

The 2023 Connected Community Christmas Lights Trail is set to encourage local community members to get into the spirit of Christmas by adorning their homes with festive decorations and twinkling lights, while gaining the opportunity to win dozens of prizes, including two major prizes of $750 in cash.

City of Armadale Mayor Cr Ruth Butterfield said 2023 will be the second year that the Christmas Lights Trail competition is being run, with close to 30 homes joining the Trail last year.

Last year’s event saw residents festooning their front yards with everything from traditional nativity scenes to giant Santa’s, oversized reindeers and thousands of colourful fairy lights.

“We love that taking part in our Connected Community Christmas Lights Trail is fast becoming a must for many families in our community, and we are really proud to have a green/solar category featured once again,” she said.

“Our unique Christmas lights trail brings so much joy to both the young and young at heart, and we would encourage everyone in our community to join in and be in the running to win some great prizes.”

This year’s 2023 competition will run from Thursday 23 November to Tuesday 12 December, with winners invited to attend a council meeting on 18 December 2023 to receive their cash prizes and vouchers from selected local businesses.

Prize categories include Best Private Residence and Best Solar/Green Display Private Residence, both of which attract a $750 cash prize. $100 vouchers will be on offer for the best private residence in Heron Ward, Hills Ward, Lake Ward, Minnawarra Ward, Palomino Ward, Ranford Ward and River Ward.

There will also be a random prize draw, with six winners being awarded a $50 voucher.
