ONCE again it's time to flick the switch on an event that brightens up the homes and the hearts of the south-west community.

Residents will soon transform their homes into shining beacons of festive cheer as they take part in the South West Progress Association's Christmas Lights Competition.

State Member for Inala Annastacia Palaszczuk said the event was a great opportunity for the community to showcase their best Christmas lights display.

"The time and effort some families put into decorating their homes is to be commended," she said.

"And this competition is a wonderful way to recognise their efforts."

The best home display this year will win $300 and a highly commended winner will take home $100.

Entries will close on Friday, December 7.

Judging will occur on the evenings of December 11 and 12, weather permitting.

Anyone within the 4077 and 4078 postcode is eligible to nominate.

Application forms are available on page 2 or by contacting the Inala Electorate Office on 3372 3207.
