Boulevard Lights

In Melbourne one residential street in particular has a reputation for its Christmas lights: the Boulevard. They take it seriously, to the extent that the road is partially closed, allowing traffic to flow slowly in one direction only. The police and St John's ambulance are there on standby alongside glow-stick sellers, food vans and revellers. The night we visited there was a band giving a live performance from their garage with people stopping to watch down the driveway and some drinking beers in the garden.
