OBERON Business and Tourism Association would like to thank the residents and businesses of Oberon for supporting the annual Christmas lights competition.

What a fantastic night the judges had looking at the lights and displays, and what a pleasure to see so many homes, shops and families taking the time to decorate and get into the Christmas spirit.

Santa greeted many children with Christmas cheer and a bag of lollies. It was pleasing to see so many well-behaved children – obviously all on their best behaviour as Santa is always watching.
