Tips & Tricks
4KQ’s Christmas lights and other competitions are great places to start, but the list can be limited. We suggest getting out and about and driving your local streets, after all, pearls are not found without searching for them. We live in one of the best communities in Brisbane. Each suburb has its own Facebook group and having a scroll through these community orientated groups is usually a great way to find some great light displays. Also, remember to check the weather forecast, if you’re heading out during or just before rain, you will most likely be disappointed. Apart from that, enjoy the Christmas break and the hunt to find the best light displays in our community.
