    Haven't been to Mackay for a long time. Hit the town there a few times when I was a young bloke (in the 90's) and loved it. Very jealous of your street. I would love my street to have that many lights. Must be a great atmosphere each Christmas time. Thanks for the videos and keep up the great work.

    reminds me of the good ol' days when everyone took the time to set up their lights.
    now a days, streets like this are few and far in-between.


    I was happy when we moved to our new area, as we have a night when all the neighbors get together and have Hors D'oeuvres at one house and desert at another. Then they all head over and watch may show and have hot coco.
