A vintage fire truck with a very important passenger will feature in an annual Border Christmas lights display that opens on Tuesday, December 18.
The Lavington Rural Fire Brigade’s light show, now in its fifth year, will start from 8pm each night until Christmas Eve at 629 Krautz Street, Lavington.
“We just do a bit more every year,” brigade captain Bruce Barnes said.
“I reckon there’s 17,000 to 18,000 lights, a pretty unique old truck, Santa’s hanging out the window and there’s reindeer on top of it.”

Mr Barnes encouraged people to stop, not just drive past, and explore the fire trucks, talk to volunteers and take part in the lucky dips, raffles and Santa’s visit.
“I believe it’s a great community thing,” he said.
“Fire awareness is a big thing now – clean your gutters, have your fire plan and don’t hesitate, if you’re going to go, go, if you’re not going to go you need to be 100 per cent prepared.”
