Boulevard Lights

Ivanhoe-Christmas-Lights-WEB-32.jpg

The Boulevard in Ivanhoe East puts on one of Melbourne’s biggest and brightest Christmas lights displays. Since the 1950s, residents have decorated their houses, gardens and windows with illuminating displays of lights, nativity scenes and everything Christmas. And every year, neighbours seem to go to even greater lengths to dazzle onlookers and put on a spectacular show, often with accompanying music.

The Boulevard Lights will run from the 16 - 24 December 2017 between 8.30pm and 11pm each night.
