Fam­i­lies en­joy car­ols in park

Euroa Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

EUROA’S Car­ols by Can­dle­light brought Christ­mas cheer to the com­mu­nity, with a good crowd get­ting along to the Seven Creeks park mar­ket area for a night of sing-alongs and cel­e­bra­tions.

The night was hosted by Gayle Maw­son, who per­formed sev­eral num­bers along­side Anita Pavone and Marg Chowanetz.

The Euroa citizens band and choir group ‘Strath­bo­gie Singers’ took to the stage and had the crowd singing along with them.

A visit from Santa was as pop­u­lar as ever, with the large gath­er­ing of kids sur­round­ing him in the hope of an early treat from the big man in red.

There were a few who were a lit­tle dis­en­chanted by the change of lo­ca­tion for the car­ols, with the un­even ground and a num­ber of trees ob­scur­ing views of the stage and mak­ing sit­ting down to watch a lit­tle un­com­fort­able.

How­ever, there was over­whelm­ing pos­i­tiv­ity re­gard­ing the per­form­ers who gave their all to make it a great night out en­joy­ing the warm De­cem­ber weather.
