The 4KQ Christmas Lights Competition is celebrating twenty-six years in 2012, with some of the biggest and brightest Christmas light displays in Australia. Each year hundreds of South East Queenslanders decorate their homes and businesses with twinkling lights, rooftop reindeers, and pseudo Santas to see who can claim bragging rights for Brisbane's best Christmas lights display.
