As the excitement of the season spreads, so too does the incredible display of Christmas lights across the Sunshine Coast.

Registrations have come in thick and fast for the annual Sunshine Coast’s Christmas Lights Competition, with public voting set to open to help crown the winners.

The principal of sponsor First National Coastal Real Estate, Paul Angell, said the calibre of entries this year was dazzling.

“Some of the features of the registered displays include a walk-through display with snow machine, a movie projector, a giant teddy bear, and one is a drive-through Christmas lane with over 175,000 lights synchronised to its own radio station,” he said.

“What a great opportunity to get your annual family Christmas photo.”

Voting is open from December 1 to 13, with three winners to be chosen at random on December 15.

All displays are highlighted on the Sunshine Coast Christmas Lights Google map, giving the community the opportunity to visit the best and brightest displays across the region.

Visit sunnycoastlights.com.au to find the map and cast a vote.

Sunshine Coast News has joined with My Weekly Preview, Lighting Illusions, First National Coastal and Salt FM to bring the event to life.
