Don't miss out on the Ipswich Christmas Lights Tours
YOU don't have to round up the reindeer and service the sleigh to enjoy this year's annual Ipswich Christmas Lights Tours.
Bookings are now open for the tours operated by Ipswich City Council.
The tours will be held on December 15, 16 and 17 from 7pm, departing the Ipswich City Council carpark at 45 Roderick Street, Ipswich.
A light supper and rest stop will be provided at the Ipswich Visitor Information Centre in Queens Park, with the tour finishing about 9.45pm.
Tickets are $22 for adults, $17 for concessions and $15 for children under 12.
Council's Tourism Committee Chairman David Pahlke said the tours sold out every year and urged people to book early to avoid disappointment.
"We're once again hosting three tours in 2015 due to the incredible popularity of previous years," Cr Pahlke said.
"The tours will take in some of the best displays from the 2015 Ipswich Christmas Lights Competition from the comfort of an air-conditioned coach.
"Many people traditionally visit the city's Christmas lights each year and these tours provide people with a way of experiencing the displays in a relaxed community atmosphere."
Cr Pahlke said Christmas lights displays helped to celebrate the spirit of the season.
"It's a way of sharing and bringing a sense of joy to the wider community," he said.
"The displays help to bring Christmas alive and add a special magic to the city."
