Each year Broome residents bring out their Christmas lights to decorate their houses in impressive displays of Christmas festivity. Viewing of the annual display of Christmas lights is eagerly anticipated by young and old alike. In 2016 Buru Energy sponsored the Broome Christmas Lights Competition to acknowledge the hard work that goes into installing the Christmas light displays.
The quality of the light displays was very high, and the judges had a difficult time deciding which who should win. After much deliberation the $1,000 Judges’ Prize was won by 30 Glenister Loop, Cable Beach, and the $500 Peoples’ Prize was won by 85 Jigal Drive, Djugun, for the amount of colour, creativity, and effort that went into their displays.
