The Albany community is being encouraged to deck the halls, the shop fronts and maybe snap a selfie or two as part of efforts to promote the Christmas spirit during December.

The City of Albany has deployed 14 sparkling festive installations on York Street, Stirling Terrace and the waterfront as part of its “bigger and better” Christmas Lights Trail.

The trail is also an opportunity for the City to encourage the community to shop locally, with four $100 vouchers up for grabs.

To be in the running, all you need to do is take a selfie with one of the installations, then upload it with the hashtag #albany christmaslightstrail to either Facebook or Instagram.

A full map of the trail can be found on the City’s website.

Businesses are also being encouraged to get into the spirit of the season by decorating their shopfronts.

Registered businesses will be in the running to win a $1000 Albany Advertiser advertising package if they are voted the people’s choice winner, which will be announced in the second week of January.

Those who vote in the awards will also be in the running for a randomly selected prize.
