The finalists in the GJ Gardner Homes Wanaka Christmas lights competition are well worth a look!
Local building firm GJ Gardner organised the competition, with the home with the most spectacular Christmas light display winning a trip for two to Las Vegas up to the value of $7500.00.
The homes to visit are...
838 Lake Hawea-Albert Town Road
44 Plantation Road, Wanaka
249 Riverbank Road, Wanaka
58 Mt Iron Drive, Wanaka
112 Tenby Street, Wanaka
Councillor Calum MacLeod, Carol Little and Tiff from The Block NZ (2016) judged the entries last night (December 15).
GJ Gardner owner Nick Tapper said it was the first time his company had done anything like this.
“The idea came from one of our team in Wanaka. We wanted to get behind a community initiative over the Christmas period.”
“We have put up a reasonable prize, so we hope this will peak people’s interest. We want people to go out and have a bit of fun and get as many houses lit up in Wanaka.”
