Welcome to Ballarat City Christmas lights 2016! Ballarat has only a few lights but a lot better than nothing centred at the heart of the city or Sturt Street. For someone like us who was used to more flashy Christmas lights especially from some parts of the Philippines; it is silent Christmas to live or visit Ballarat around this time of the year except for the car hooning drivers that you might hear from our Periscope live-stream. Not much people on the street rather silent nights. There is no nightlife here, just us tonight. Ballarat City doesn’t have New Year’s Eve fireworks except on “Australia Day” January 26th night (tax payers budget not for it). We do have New Year’s Eve spectacular only in the metro cities of Melbourne and Sydney would blast them on!

Santa’s reindeer are all alive beaming with lights at night and alive with flower plants at day time. They’re ready to take-off when we are taking photos. They had all weekend posing for photos with tourists and travellers around the world, they said.

There’s always the Christmas tree, the real green tree alive adorned with lights & ornaments blinking at night!
That’s about the Christmas lights in Ballarat; there are few more but just take the highlights Christmas tree and the reindeer. Happy blessed Christmas and Happy Grand New 2017 to all of you!
