THERE are only a few days remaining to register for the annual Put Christmas in Your Street competition. 

Run every year, the festive community event asks residents to light up their homes throughout December.

Six finalists will be chosen by judges, each then receiving a wishing well to place in their yards for people to leave donations for the 2BS Bathurst Lions Christmas Miracle Appeal.

2BS general manager Phil Cole said is costs about $30,000 to make the hampers given to people through the Christmas Miracle Appeal. 

While the donations support the appeal, they are also used to determine the People’s Choice winner in the competition. 

Residents who want to showcase their decorations can enter the appeal by picking up a registration form from the Western Advocate office or 2BS and B-Rock Studios on George Street.

Entries close at 2pm on Friday.

Judging of the displays will be conducted on December 5 and 6, with the finalists to be announced at 4.30pm on December 9. 

The owner of the best display, as voted by the judges, will receive $250 from Bathurst Regional Council, a $100 voucher to Rydges Chicane Bar and Grill and $100 cash from Bathurst Real Estate.

The other five finalists will also receive a voucher to Rydges Chicane Bar and Grill and money from Bathurst Real Estate.

Collect a registration form for further information about the competition.
