RIDING in style is an option while touring around Leeton's festive Christmas lights this year.
The Lions Club of Leeton is set to chauffeur residents again, but this time around things will seem a little different.
The new Lions Express will make its Christmas debut after the old Lions engine, which has services the community for more than 46 years, had to be retired.
As a result, the new Lions Express has been brought into service as a replacement engine.
"To celebrate the launch of the new engine, Leeton Lions have given the carriage a new paint job to match the colours of the new Lions Express," club member Bob Strempel said.
Light tours will kick off on December 3, leaving the Leeton Market Plaza carpark at 8.30pm returning about 11pm.
Leeton Lions co-ordinator Brian Collins was hopeful residents would take up the opportunity to see the town's lights without the hassle of driving themselves.
"The light tours are planned to enable residents to view the Christmas lights in comfort and safety," he said.
"Each tour is limited in the number of passengers and tickets will not be sold on the night."
Tickets are available from Broso's Farmland Supplies in Acacia Avenue and bookings can be made by calling 6953 2388.
"We advise anyone planning to book a seats to get in quickly," Mr Collins said.
"Late bookings will only be subject to room being available."
