It is a very busy time of the year for Megan Crowther, a Mount Isa local. She has been organising the much loved Christmas Lights Cavalcade for 8 years. She dedicates her personal time to organise a safe and enjoyable event for everyone with a large number of vehicles and lights displays.
Ms Crowther said it's not easy to choose the D-date for this event as so many things are happening in everybody's calendar around this time of the year. Ms Crowther always makes sure that the date for the Mount Isa Christmas Lights Cavalcade does not clash with other events by coordinating with other people and organisations. But so far, the Mount Isa Christmas Lights Cavalcade is always a hit! Last year, there were over 100 vehicles, including bikes.
This family event is a chance for Mount Isa to dress up to impress and show their Christmas spirit. This year, Mount Isa Elders Insurance is on board with a $200 winner's prize for the best decorated house. The best-decorated vehicle in the cavalcade will also receive a special prize from The Boss Shop Mount Isa.
So, start decorating your house and vehicle soon because the 2019 Mount Isa Christmas Lights Cavalcade will be on Sunday 8th December. The cavalcade will depart from Barkly Hotel carpark on 55 Barkly Highway Mount Isa at 7.30pm. If you want to take part, please register your address through this Facebook page. Don't miss out this event - mark your calendar. Psssst, there will be giveaways for children and also Santa will arrive in style! So, try very hard to stay on the nice list!
