CWP Renewables and Bango Wind Farm are once again hosting a Christmas Light Up competition in Yass, Boorowa and surrounds. The popular competition has been running for the past two years and was enjoyed by the local communities.
This year, CWP Renewables is partnering with Woolworths Yass to give away $1,700 worth of prizes. Entries are open to all properties within the Yass Valley local government area, as well as Boorowa district, including Frogmore, Muringo, Rye Park, Reid’s Flat and Rugby.
“Each year there are so many displays that are deserving of recognition, from family homes to businesses and even farm gates. We want to help shine a light on the local community's efforts to share some festive cheer and give them the chance to not only win bragging rights, but great prizes too,” said Yass Woolworths Manager Brad Shaw.
“Many local residents and business owners go to great lengths each year to create uplifting Christmas light displays. It’s always a wonderful experience visiting local neighbourhoods and seeing the joy on people’s faces as they enjoy the displays,” said Bango Wind Farm Community Engagement Coordinator Lyn Diskon.
“It’s a bit of fun that often brings communities together and we’re proud to be running the competition again this year,” she said.
Participants should ensure that all lights, animations and decorations are in place and activated from 7:00 to 9:30 pm on the judging nights, which will take place on 5 – 7 December.
There will be five judged categories:
• Best lit house/residence
• Best commercial/non-residential/premises
• Best novelty display
• Best renewable energy display
• Best rural property
Entries close on Friday 25 November, with winners to be announced on 9 December on Bango Wind Farm’s Facebook page.
Printed entry forms are available at the Yass Library, Yass Visitor Information Centre, Boorowa Library, Old Courthouse Arts and Crafts Centre and Boorowa Community Op Shop.
