Light Up Lane Cove is Back

Get those Christmas Lights ready – the very popular Lane Cove Christmas Lights competition is back. ITC loves seeing a decorated Christmas house. A decorated house is a joy to behold. So get involved Lane Cove.

This annual Lane Cove Council competition aims to help our community discover the local Christmas lights that are proudly displayed throughout Lane Cove.

The Six White Boomers House in Yallambee Street is always a crowd favourite

Which Streets Are the Best Streets To View the Lights

Lane Cove Council has an online map which guides you to the houses that have entered the Light Up Lane Cove competition.  (Up to date as at 8 December 2017).

Vote for your favourite home as part of the People’s Choice category.

How to Enter the Lane Cove Christmas Lights Comp

There is $1000 worth of prizes for best home, best street, and the popular people’s choice.

To enter all you need to do is decorate your home with lights and register by Friday 8 December to be in the running. The competition period is from Friday 8 December to Monday 18 December providing a wonderful start to the festive season in Lane Cove.

Once you register your interest you will receive a registration pack from Lane Cove Council to help you get started. This year the Lane Cove Council is encouraging participants to also send a photograph or video of your lights in action by Friday 15 December.

To make it easy for residents to view the lights, from 7th December, an online map will be on the Lane Cove Council’s website. So set aside a night to have dinner at one of our wonderful Lane Cove eateries and then check out the Light Up Lane Cove entries.

Lane Cove Christmas Lights – Best Street Prize

This is a great excuse to get together with your neighbours and enter the best street competition. Residents of Sutherland Street won the best street prize for a couple of years running.  Which street will finally beat them?

ITC looks forward to seeing your lights.
