The best Gold Coast Christmas lighting displays 2022
Deck the halls…. or the house!
You may or may not be aware that over the Christmas period, the Gold Coast in Australia comes alive. Meaning, it comes completely alive with Gold Coast Christmas light spectacular! Red, gold, green, blue, and every other colour under the sun! Dancing Santa’s, reindeers on the roof, snowmen (although the Gold Coast never snows), and everything else the homeowners can think of. All of this adding to a magnificent showcase competition of Christmas lighting. Use your imagination to think how big this competition can get, and you’ll be close! A bit of a battle to be the best decorated home, breeds the need to be better than the next person, and the great lengths some competitors go to is unbelievable.
Every year, the Gold Coast plays host to the annual Gold Coast Christmas Lighting Competition, where households in residential areas, compete to win the prestigious title of the best Christmas light displays in the whole of the GC. In 2021, the title went to: a Pacific Pines home which scored a whopping 20% of votes. This home showcased 25 songs, synchronised to 15,000 light bulbs and plasmas. Talk about amazing! The runner up also being in Pacific Pines. This area is always a must-see at this time of year!
Planning and preparation happens throughout the year, giving everyone lots of time to think of new, bigger and better ways to show their Christmas love. Whilst the competition is the major factor, lights and Christmas banging beats are all throughout towns and cities, shopping centres and along the beaches, bringing a truly festive spirit to the whole place.
This really does bring a new meaning to the term ‘deck the halls.” Whilst I wouldn’t want to be responsible for any of the participants electricity bills, it really does bring a festive twist to the community and brings together residents at a time of year that should do exactly that.
