Central Queensland News - - LIFE - Aden Stokes Aden.Stokes@cqnews.com.au

CAL­VARY Chris­tian Church Emer­ald is hard at work pre­par­ing for the most an­tic­i­pated carols event of the year, Carols Spec­tac­u­lar.

Carols Spec­tac­u­lar is a free com­mu­nity event tonight at the Cal­vary Chris­tian Church Emer­ald, 11 Glad­stone St.

The carols be­gin at 6pm with breath­tak­ing per­for­mances from lo­cal artists, in­clud­ing mem­bers of the Cal­vary Chris­tian Church. Santa will also pay a visit.

At 7.15pm the carols will end. Out on the oval, how­ever, out­side the Cal­vary Chris­tian Church build­ing, a food fes­ti­val and kids’ carnival will swing into ac­tion.

Pop­u­lar lo­cal ven­dors at the food fes­ti­val in­clude Mr Chippy, Mr Whippy, Chi­nese, Thai, Cake Ma­nia, Deca­dent De­lights and Go Raw.

The kids’ carnival will then fea­ture jump­ing cas­tles,

mega slides and face paint­ing.

Cal­vary Chris­tian Church pas­tor Chris Yel­land said this was the sec­ond year the Carols Spec­tac­u­lar had been held.

He had been look­ing for­ward to it since the moment the last one fin­ished.

“It was so en­joy­able last year, the whole team has been look­ing for­ward to it all year long,” he said.

“We had hun­dreds of peo­ple turn up to the Carols Spec­tac­u­lar last year and it was well re­ceived.

“It is go­ing to be a fun night, so come out with your fam­i­lies, sing all of your favourite songs and then have a great meal af­ter­wards.

“The kids’ carnival is there to keep the kids en­ter­tained while mum and dad can min­gle and have some din­ner.”

Pas­tor Yel­land be­lieves the church should have the loud­est voice dur­ing this time of the year.

“Je­sus is the cen­tre of it all and the rea­son we have the hol­i­day, so we thought, why not put on a dis­play for the com­mu­nity and bless them with a great event that will share that mes­sage,” he said.

He be­lieves the Carols Spec­tac­u­lar is some­thing that is go­ing to con­tinue to grow in years to come.

“We pre­sume this will be the last year we will be able to hold the event in­side our build­ing, as we had 100 peo­ple turn up last year and are ex­pect­ing it to grow this year, so it is on­wards and up­wards,” he said.
