A Christmas light display in Nanaimo.

Annual Christmas lights display map published

NANAIMO – A map of Christmas light displays in Nanaimo will be published in print Dec. 23 and online next week.

The News Bulletin has once again partnered with the Greater Nanaimo Chamber of Commerce to provide a map of some of the best light displays in the Nanaimo region.

Each year volunteers with the chamber head out into the night to judge the best displays, which are then forwarded to the News Bulletin for publication.

The official map and the winners will be published in the Dec. 23 issue. To get a jump start on Christmas spirit, however, check next Thursday’s (Dec. 15) News Bulletin for a story on what it takes to create a massive light display – and win top honours in the annual competition.

We’ll also be collecting the best displays in the city for an online, interactive map to be published on our website in the coming days.

To suggest an addition to the map, please e-mail editor@nanaimobulletin.com.
