It is that time of year to start dusting of the decorations, untangle the twinkling lights, test the inflatable Santa, and start planning with your neighbours the best exterior illumination to rival Chris Griswold!

The Federation Council is inviting residents and businesses to enter their dazzling Christmas display in the 2023 Light Up Federation Christmas Light Competition and go into the running to win a share of $1,000 of gift vouchers for local businesses.

The categories for this year’s competition include:

  • Best Decorated House

  • Best Decorated Street
  • People’s Choice Award (NEW CATEGORY)


To register, submit the online entry form or complete a hardcopy form at any Council office or Library. Entries close 5:00 pm Friday 8 December, 2023.

To help you arrange your drive to see the lights and decorations a flyer of all registered homes and businesses will be available from Monday 13 December, at all Council offices and libraries. The flyer can also be downloaded from the Council’s website.

Residents and visitors are encouraged to vote for their favourite display by jumping on the Council website from Monday 11 December and voting for the People’s Choice Award.
