Come Christmas time Broome residents pull out their lights and create amazing displays for the whole town to enjoy. A highlight on the Christmas calendar is the annual Christmas lights competition that brings out some healthy competition between families to see who can create the most dazzling display. Buru Energy has been an eager sponsor of the competition for three years and each year there is eager anticipation to be involved in the judging of the displays.
For the second year in a row the Brougham family took out first prize for their amazing display. The family captured the attention of judges with their Kimberley connection, especially the handmade boab tree, lit up by more than 6000 lights.
The Quilisadio family took out second prize sponsored by Buru Energy. Their efforts did not go unnoticed, with more than two months of preparation going into their impeccable display, which featured stars and 260 flowers, all completely handmade.
