Fam­i­lies enjoy mu­sic by glow­light

Pilbara News - - Lifestyle - Ali­cia Perera

Dampier got into the fes­tive spirit on Satur­day, De­cem­ber 12, with its an­nual Carols by Glow­light evening draw­ing peo­ple from all over the re­gion to cel­e­brate on Hamp­ton Oval.

There were plenty of ac­tiv­i­ties for chil­dren in­clud­ing a bouncy cas­tle, pony rides, face paint­ing, crafts run by the Dampier Com­mu­nity As­so­ci­a­tion, and even a sea of foam to play in thanks to the vol­un­teer fire­fight­ers’ truck.

Mean­while, adults had their Christ­mas shop­ping and a bite to eat at the 40 food and mer­chan­dise stalls set up around the oval.

Later on fam­i­lies set­tled down for an evening of carols cour­tesy of lo­cal pri­mary schools and com­mu­nity choirs, and brought out their glow­lights to wave in time.

Or­gan­is­ers said it was a big­ger and bet­ter com­mu­nity event than ever and chil­dren and adults alike left with big smiles on their faces.
