Christmas lights - The Boulevard in Ivanhoe East

What to do after a massage at Souri’s Myotherapy & Massage? Visit the Boulevard in Ivanhoe East in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne for a free Christmas experience. A great little trip for the whole family. The Melbourne residents of the Boulevard in Ivanhoe East take a lot of effort to decorate their houses with wonderful christmas lights. More than 100,000 Melbournians visit the street every year before christmas. The best christmas lights display in Melbourne.

The Boulevard Lights has been running for over 60 years, with the residents of The Boulevard and surrounding streets decorating their houses, gardens and windows with colourful Christmas lights. As well as the great lights displays, there will be entertainment from a variety of choirs and musical groups, and refreshments available along the way.

Just get off Burke Road Exit on the Eastern Freeway and park your car close by. Walk down the street for the best experience - don’t drive just through the street. I suggest arriving at around 8:15pm. You get easily a car park and it is not so busy yet. Usually the council also runs a shuttle bus from Ivanhoe train station.

The lights are on display every year before christmas. The display is open in 2010 between Saturday, 11 December to Thursday, 23 December from 8.30pm - 11pm.
