RESIDENTS across the district are invited to dust off their Santa hats, warm up their singing voices and get ready for festive fun at the annual Carols by Candelight event.
A great night out for the family, the City of Whittlesea event will feature the Community Carols Choir and Diamond Valley Brass Band.
There will be plenty of entertainment for the kids including face painting, a live nativity scene, animal farm and art workshops.
And of course there will a special visit from Santa who’s bringing a special touch of magic to the carols this year.
“I’m bringing a touch of the North Pole with me to Carols by Candlelight this year, come along and see some Christmas magic,” Santa said when he dropped by the Civic Centre in South Morang last week.
This year’s event is proudly supported – for the second year – by Community Developer AVJennings’ Lyndarum North project.
The AVJennings team will be hosting the children’s craft tent and selling LED Candles, with the proceeds going to the Steve Waugh Foundation.
Infinity Church in South Morang will also be collecting non-perishable food times and presents to donate to those in need in the community, while the church volunteers will be cooking up a barbecue to raise money for their community kitchen.
Attendees are welcome to bring a picnic, enjoy the barbecue of visit one of the food trucks.
The City of Whittlesea Carols by Candelight will be held on Friday, December 8 at 7pm at the Redleap Reserve in Mill Park.
