Christmas lights winners revealed on Friday


THE wait is almost over to find out who will win this year's South Burnett Christmas Lights competition.

Judges have been assessing the entrants from every corner of the South Burnett to try and find the very best on display.

First prize will win a holiday package to Singapore worth $15,000, with the runner up winning a $10,000 holiday package.

This year's prizes have been donated by Hancock Prospecting.

Winners will be announced on Friday, with the full list appearing in Friday's edition of the South Burnett Times.


SHINING Christmas lights throughout the South Burnett have left Mayor Wayne Kratzmann in awe.

"I can't believe the work some people have put in," Cr Kratzmann said.

"Some houses are lovely, some are amazing, and some tell a story.

"The town streets are all lit up, and neighbours have inspired each other.

"And there were people handing out treats on Saturday and spreading the Christmas cheer.

"We knew that a lot of people would get involved and that it was going to be something special."

Cr Kratzmann toured the South Burnett at the weekend examining the best lights the region had to offer.

The self-proclaimed "Christmas tragic" is getting into the Christmas spirit himself.

"My house is decorated and the council is getting into the spirit and decorating too," Cr Kratzmann said.

"I don't want the responsibility of being a judge."
