Local residents are invited to get voting and to get decorating for the Lower Eyre Peninsula Christmas Lights Competition.

The competition, run by Raine and Horne Port Lincoln in partnership with Port Lincoln City Band,is in its fourth year showcasing Christmas light displays across Lower Eyre Peninsula.

All entries are judged by public vote, which opened on December 1 with Raine and Horne Port Lincoln showing where all entries are located on a map on its website.

Raine and Horne property sales consultant Valerie Staunton said at least eight homes, including one in Tumby Bay, had already registered but hoped more would enter.

She said residents in communities including Cummins and Coffin Bay were invited to enter as well.

“Everyone loves a Christmas lights display and it’s a bright and cheery way to spread the joy of Christmas,” she said.

Voting closes December 20 with the winner announced at the Community Christmas Party at Laguna Reserve the following day.

The house with the most votes wins $500 while one voter will be selected to win a Christmas hamper supplied by Port Lincoln City Band.

More information is available on the Christmas Lights Competition LEP 2017 Facebook page.

The Port Lincoln City Band will also be out and about in Port Lincoln playing Christmas carols and people can find out when by visiting the band’s website.
