THE South Burnett Christmas Lights Competition has been judged and the winners from each category are all revealed in today's paper.

Mayor Wayne Kratzmann said he was not a part of the judging team, but was delighted with the displays around the region.

"I urge everyone to put their kids in the car, strap them in and go for a drive to see the wonderful displays people have created in their streets and gardens," he said.

Cr Kratzmann said it was a great thing to do after a hard day at work.

He said the effort people put into their displays was commendable.

"There are some very lovely gardens. It's quite amazing," he said.

Councillor Kathy Duff was on the judging team and described the experience of seeing the entries as sensational.

"People put so much effort and time putting them together and I think it is wonderful for the community," she said.

Cr Duff will travel on the Castra bus next week to see the winning entries with the elderly people of Murgon.

The urban residential winners for each town are Dave and Linda Marskell (14 Cowie Dr, Kingaroy), Monica Dennis (cnr Jeffries and Nutt Sts, Murgon), Carolyn Dingle and Andrew Maddern (7 Home St, Nanango), Stephen and Annette Heit (103 Coulson St, Blackbutt) and Eric and Jackie Bartlett (72 Baynes St, Wondai).
