Fraser Coast Lights Up!

Have you seen the light?

Fraser Coast Lights Up!
Well, we have come to that time of year again. Christmas Carol evenings are happening all across the region, the Christmas trees are up and decorated, and the rum balls have been made (and eaten, and remade if my house is anything to go by!).
A wonderful tradition in my family is the annual drive around on Christmas Eve looking at all of the lit up houses and businesses that have gone to the effort (and expense, glad it’s not my power bill!) of decorating their lawns and homes. Below you can find a list of the 2016 Light up the Fraser Coast entries, both competitive and non-competitive. Enjoy! A map of the areas can be found at the Fraser Coast Council website by clicking here.
