First ever hunt for ‘best lights’ in Eid

HOMES will light up this Eid as Canterbury Bankstown Council calls on residents to get involved in its first ever Eid lights competition.

The council is looking to find the best decorated homes in each of the City’s five wards, with prizes of up to $500 on offer for the most outstanding displays.
A council spokesperson said over the coming weeks, the community would be celebrating religious holidays and spiritual events such as Ramadan, Easter and Eid.
“It’s an important time for many in our community as they reflect and embrace the significance of this holy period,” the spokesperson said.
“We’re proud of the diverse cultures in our City and the vibrancy that they create.
“To mark this year’s Eid, we’re holding a lights competition, similar to the competition held over the Christmas holiday period.”
The spokesperson encouraged everyone to decorate and showcase their homes to the rest of Sydney.
“It’s not just about the lights, it’s about being creative and engaging,” she said
Residents decorating their homes to mark the season can enter the competition by submitting a picture of their display to the council’s website by noon on Wednesday, April 10.
All eligible entries will then be displayed on the website, where the community can vote for their favourite display. Voting will close on Wednesday, April 17, 9am.
Winners will be announced on Thursday, April 18, and receive a $500 gift card and runners-up will receive a $200 gift card.
