Lights fantastic for kids of Caboolture

Lights fantastic for kids of Caboolture

Koah O’Neill and Emma Jackson, pictured above, have lit up their neighbourhood - again.

Every year they festoon the front of their home at 6 Riverparks Way, Upper Caboolture with amazing Christmas lights and displays.

This year is their best yet and is in the first Moreton Daily Christmas Lights competition, which has a prize pool of $24,000.

3000 lights

Voting is now open until December 19 to tell us your favourite light display. Click here.

Mr O’Neill said they have around 3000 lights and five blow-up features as well as a snow machine, Santa letterbox and colouring for youngsters.

“Emma is really into Christmas and she’s got me into the spirit of this,” he said, “we mainly do it for the kids to see their faces light up.

Dinosaur feature

“We’ve been doing it for three years and it has helped us meet and speak to people in the neighbourhood we haven’t met before.”

This year’s display, which takes a day-and-a-half to build - includes a 4.5-metre dinosaur, Santa in a forklift delivering presents and a koala.

All are inflated around 6pm each night and deflected around 9.30pm, weather permitting. Mr O’Neill said they planned to keep the display up until new year.

Planning ahead

Discussions have also been held about their 2022 display.

“We’re running out of lawn, so we might look at doing a display in the garage,” Mr O’Neill said, “perhaps with a train theme.”

Entries for the first Moreton Daily Christmas Lights competition are now closed and judging is under way until December 19.

Voting deadline

Displays must be in the Moreton Bay Region and visible from 7-9.30pm.

Winners will be announced at the Pine Rivers Christmas Carols on December 19.
