It’s time to deck the halls and help your street sparkle because City of Canterbury Bankstown’s annual Christmas Lights Competition is back!

Council is on the hunt for the most festive house in each of Canterbury-Bankstown’s five wards, with prizes of up to $500 for the most outstanding Christmas displays.

Canterbury-Bankstown Mayor Bilal El-Hayek encouraged everyone to decorate their homes and show the rest of Sydney that the holiday spirit is very much alive in our City.

“It’s not just about which displays are the biggest and brightest, but the most creative and engaging,” Mayor El-Hayek said.

Residents are encouraged to round up their family and friends and see the spectacular set-ups for themselves with Council’s online Christmas Lights Map.

Mayor El-Hayek said the map takes the hassle out of searching for places to see the City’s best Christmas lights.

“It’s a great opportunity to get the family together for a festive night of fun,” he said.

Think you have the best lights on the block? Submit a picture of your Christmas lights display by noon Tuesday 12 December.

All entries will be showcased on Council’s Facebook Page, @OurCBCity, where residents can vote for their favourite festive display from Thursday 14 to Tuesday 19 December 2023.

The winner of each ward will be announced on the Facebook Page on Thursday 21 December and take home a $500 gift card for first place or a $200 gift card for runner up.
