Families enjoy music by glowlight
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.
