Some history on The Boulevard Lights

The Boulevard Lights in Ivanhoe East attracts people from across Melbourne and is considered to be an essential Christmas tradition.

Each year, thousands of people drive and walk along the Boulevard each evening in the lead up to Christmas, with up to 10,000 visitors per night.

The tradition started over 60 years ago, with residents of The Boulevard and surrounding streets decorating their houses, windows and gardens with light displays, nativity scenes and Christmas decorations.

Since 1993 the 96.5 Inner FM team have been broadcasting LIVE with Santa each year.
