Default Christmas Glitz


Itís all happening in Wangí, Christmas lights and decorations adorn the roundabouts at each corner of the town. Iíll try to capture the magic tonight at dusk.
Some ratepayers criticised the local council for spending $200,000 on the decorations; the mayor was on tv last night to defend the spend, but it has also plenty of support.
From what I saw this morning as I strolled around the city, the money was well spent, the sculptures reflect Wangaratta's forward thinking global outlook. The Christmas tree is great.







Images shot tonight at dusk

These look like huge candy bowls by daylight. By night, they look more like Christmas ornaments with self-illuminated sparkles.

They're hooked into the city power grid, they go on and off with the street lighting.
Btw, I'm 50 miles out of Wang' at a country bakery pigging out on cake and cappuccino. Great day, 27 celsius!
