Ettalong to light up for Christmas
The Peninsula Tourism Partners is planning to run a Christmas Lights Competition for the Ettalong business community in December.
Businesses are being asked to decorate their shopfront and window display in lead-up to Christmas.
Tourism Partners president Ms Kim Cole said the competition was aimed to attract more visitors to Ettalong.
'Santa's helpers are busy collecting applications from participating shops and so far the response has been overwhelming with the creative juices flowing on how to decorate for this year's competition already," Ms Cole said
Judges will visit the displays and with the expertise of Member for Gosford Ms Liesl Tesch, the winners will be announced before Christmas.
This year, shoppers can also vote for their favourite display by visiting the Peninsula Tourism Partners Facebook page.
Ms Tesch said she couldn't wait to see Ettalong light up for the competition.
"What a positive initiative for the village that will surely bring lots of visitors into town," she said.
As Christmas draws closer Ms Cole said shops around Ettalong would be extending their trading hours.
"We trust that the light exhibition will encourage locals and visitors alike to shop in Ettalong," she said.
