Christmas Lights display at Snap Laundromat, Taringa – official Brisbane 4KQ Entrant

Snap Laundromat’s Christmas Lights display is officially part of Brisbane’s Annual  4KQ Christmas Lights Competition.  Snap was announced by 4KQ as an official entrant in early December. Located at 86 Whitmore Street Taringa, the laundry’s wonderful display lights up Whitmore and Westerham Streets, and features Santa and his reindeers leaving the north pole on Christmas Eve.

Recently renovated this year, Snap’s owners Michelle & Ian, wanted to support the local neighbourhood and businesses with a memorable Christmas lights display.

“Our own children were so thrilled with our Christmas lights idea and entering the 4KQ competition, we knew that the surrounding neighbourhood would enjoy it too,” Michelle said.

“It’s great to give back to the community that has supported us through the renovations, and who continue to encourage and support our small business”.

The laundry’s Christmas lights display can be enjoyed every night.  Place of Stones restaurant, next door to the Laundromat, serves delicious meals, deserts and coffees to enjoy too.  Bring your family and visit Whitmore Street Taringa, and experience this festive time of year in Brisbane.

These internationally-trained musicians and dancers, including clarinetist/saxophonist Diana Tolmie, cellist Danielle Bentley, violinist/violist Benjamin Greaves, Composer in Residence Susan Hawkins, and Resident Choreographer Gareth Belling brought their instruments, costumes and creativity to Snap’s backdrop of stainless steel machines & bright colours.

Customers and residents of Whitmore Street were treated to visions of cellos, clarinets, violins, musicians and dancers striking stylish poses at the laundromat.

It felt like a Hollywood movie set with makeup artists, dressing rooms and refreshments bar (including champagne!) for the artists.

Collusion Music is in Residence at Griffith University Queensland Conservatorium, and will be supported by the Queensland Government for their 2014 program. For more details about this amazing group, view their website at www.collusion.com.au
