While the local regional council sponsors the Christmas lights competition in town, our local paper The Barcoo Independent sponsors a Christmas road sign competition for those living out of town.
It certainly has the "WOW!" factor, don't you think.
Ours looked great by night. We had fibre optic lights on it that were turned on each night and they could be seen for quite a distance.
but rather ordinary by day, especially when the tinsel faded within 4 days!
We already have plans to improve on it for Christmas 2009!
