Prepare yourself for a retina-scorching blast of festive fun. And remember; you can’t spell “yourself” without “elf”, thus proving that the spirit of Christmas lives on inside us all.
Karingal Road, Dernancourt
Are you doing anything at 8pm on Saturday, December 19th? You are indeed, because you’re going to the Make-A-Wish family fundraising event on Karingal Road. Expect stunning lights aplenty, smoke machines, lasers, bubbles and snow, as well as food, drink, a pro DJ and even face painting (yes). Let’s all start Christmassing our faces off, shall we?
Chellaston Road, Munno Para West
You know what’s better than one light? Why, two lights, of course. You know what’s better than two lights? Forty-five thousand lights! Yes! And that’s just what you’ll find on Chellaston Road, where seasonal cheer reigns supreme. Get jiggy with it synced up to music too, so it’s quite the delightful spectacle.
Whitmore Street, Redwood Park
The Wright family on Whitmore Street has become legendary for their enchanting displays of festive lightery. What’s more, they’ve raised lots of money over the years for the WCH Foundation and the Royal Adelaide Hospital Research Fund, two causes very dear to their hearts. So, head down, check out the lights and drop a little donation into the ‘wishing well’ this year. Come on; it’s Christmas!
Lobethal, Adelaide Hills
The largest community Christmas lights display in the Southern Hemisphere (yeah, that’s right), The Lights of Lobethal has blossomed over the last sixty years into something truly wonderful. The whole neighbourhood gets in on the act, with market stalls, carol singing, a ‘living nativity’, loads of food and various other magical yuletide events and attractions. Unmissable!
Simone Crescent and Buttercup Grove, Morphett Vale
Almost every house in the vicinity gets decked out for the Simone Crescent and Buttercup Grove Christmas lights, making it quite the sensational show of spectacular seasonal cheer. It’s so good that even Santa Claus starts showing up around December 18th, armed with a never-ending supply of lollies. They’re raising money for cancer research too, so what more reason do you need to get involved?
