Residents are encouraged to share in the festive fun by decorating their properties and registering their displays online for all Tweed residents to browse and enjoy.
To celebrate the holiday spirit, Council has launched the Tweed Festive Glow Guide: an interactive map of festive light displays and decorations around the Tweed.
Mayor of Tweed Shire Chris Cherry was pleased to launch the Tweed’s first official map of festive displays, which relies on residents registering their properties to build up the map.
“Each year many residents around the Tweed create incredible displays of lights and decorations and I am pleased we will now have a one-stop portal to showcase their efforts,” Cr Cherry said.
“Many families also have Christmas traditions of touring around the Tweed in search of spectacular festive displays. The Tweed Festive Glow Guide means they will have a map to follow while they create these precious memories.”
Pottsville residents Danny and Cherie Brentnall, who have already registered their display on the Festive Glow Guide, said the collective excitement in the neighbourhood makes all their decorating worthwhile.
“It’s just really great to bring the community together. We enjoy making people happy, meeting new people and getting into the festive spirit,” Mr Brentnall said.
“Most of the neighbours in the street get into it and decorate their houses – we have a snow machine going on the weekends too. The kids love it and on Christmas Eve, the street is packed with people. It’s great!”
Cr Cherry said she hoped the festive map would help to bring the Tweed together over the Christmas season.
“Our community deserves lifted spirits and festive season joy as we count down to Christmas and New Year’s Eve – it’s been a big year for everyone as we have navigated many challenges and celebrated many wins,” she said.
“Residents, local businesses, Council staff and other authorities have come together to support each other in 2023. It’s important to remember this season is about connection and finding joy, especially in the small moments.”
Residents are encouraged to register their merry and bright displays at tweed.nsw.gov.au/Christmas.
The most impressive displays will be published as a special feature in the last edition of Tweed Link for 2023.
