Festive Playford | Deck the Halls
Published 30 November 2020
COMPETITION NOW CLOSED - Merry Christmas! Happy Hannukah! Joyous Kwanzaa! Show us how you celebrate your festive holiday for a chance to share in $500 worth of prizes.


Congratulations to Sarah Jane, Rebecca, and Ron for being selected as the winners for our Deck the Halls 2020 Promotion!
Winners have been contacted.

Our thanks to everyone for your entries, merry Christmas to all!

We want you to share some of your festive decorations with us for the chance to spread some seasonal cheer and possibly win a little retail windfall!

We may have missed Diwali, and it's a bit early for Chinese New Year, but if you celebrate Christmas, Hannukah, Kwanzaa, or another meaningful end of year holiday, we'd love to see photos of your decorations, and find out what your display means to you.

It might be some decorations you put up every year, handed down from previous generations, or it may be something the kids made at school. Whether you decorate in your front yard, front window, loungeroom or dining table, or even dress up the family pet, we want you to share with our Playford community!

Ooh, and... prizes!

1st prize - $250
2nd prize - $150
3rd prize - $100

Prize winners will receive Retail Shopping Gift Vouchers, just in time for a last minute Christmas splurge.

* Decorate!
