Our 2020 Display



OUR 2020LIGHTS DISPLAY



2020 was an extremely difficult year for everybody trying to cope with Covid-19 restrictions etc.,
but for us it was made even more difficult as we also had the Cudlee Creek Bushfire on December 20th 2019.

During the year we decided to continue with our display for 2020, as we felt that the public should be able to have some “normality” in such troubled times.


About 10 weeks before the Lights of Lobethal Festival was due to start the Festival Committee announced that they had cancelled the Festival due to COVID-19 restrictions.
However they said that the local households should continue with their lights displays.


Then in mid November the SA Government announced a six-day total lockdown following a COVID-19 outbreak at Parafield, however these restrictions were eased 3 days later, but the number of visitors to a private home was limited to 10.
These restrictions remained in place until mid-December when the number was increased to 50 visitors.

The restrictions meant that for the first 10 days of our display we could have only 10 people on our property at a time, and we had to be at our gate and count the people in and out. There were a lot of people queuing up to enter, but they were all very understanding and patient.
Once the restrictions were eased to 50 people our job became much easier, but we still had to monitor our numbers with large crowds queuing to enter.


Although it was difficult to monitor the crowds it was an enjoyable experience for us as we found that our visitors were generally please to be able to see the display, and more wanted to stop and chat with us about their experiences with the fire and coping with Covid-19.
Hopefully 2020 will be a better year for all.
