HOUSEHOLDS across the Fraser Coast have begin turning on their Christmas lights ahead of the Festive Season.
The 2021 Christmas lights trail has been plotted and the map is now available on Council’s website.
WASTE TO ART: Open category winner a real howler
Mayor George Seymour said 137 houses have been included on the trail this year – up from 99 in 2020.
“It is fantastic to see the trail continuing to grow and more people nominating their light displays,” Cr Seymour said.
Maps can be viewed on Council’s website from 1 December.
Printed copies will also be available at Council’s Customer Service Centres.
“I really encourage people to go and have a look to appreciate the hard work that has gone into making the displays. They add so much to the Christmas atmosphere,” Cr Seymour said.
“Please stay COVID safe when viewing the displays.
“If you can stay in your car, please do. If you do get out to have a closer look, please remember your social distancing.”
