IT’S that time of year again when the box of Christmas lights gets dusted off and a new display is planned.
With the Festive Season just around the corner, the Fraser Coast Regional Council is busy plotting the 2022 Light up the Fraser Coast Trail.

If you want your Christmas lights display to feature on the map this year, you’ll need to let Council know before 5pm on 21 November.
More than 135 families had their Christmas light displays added to the map last year.
Once the Light up the Fraser Coast Trail is made public, families from across the region head out in the evenings in the build-up to Christmas to look at the lights.
To be a part of the Light Up the Fraser Coast Trail, you’ll need to fill in the online nomination form on the Council website.
You can also ring Council on 1300 79 49 29 to ask a Customer Service Officer to help them fill in the online form.
Residents can also get together to have a go at taking out the coveted Christmas Street Award – you need a minimum of three houses to nominate for the street award.

The winning street is presented with the ‘Christmas Street’ sign to be displayed under their street sign for the next year.
Nominations for the Light Up the Fraser Coast Trail, and for Christmas Street, close at 5pm on Monday, November 21 to give Council time to create the maps so they are available from early December.
The maps, and a list of festive activities from across the region, will be available from the Council website in early December.
