We wish you a karaoke Christ­mas

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

IT’S time for su­perb lo­cal singers and wannabe war­blers to hit the high notes for Christ­mas car­ols un­der the com­mu­nity Christ­mas tree - karaoke-style.

Car­ols Karaoke will be held un­der the Port Dou­glas com­mu­nity Christ­mas tree in Mar­ket Park which has been dec­o­rated with “sus­tain­able bling”.

The whole of Mar­ket Park is now daz­zling af­ter dark with more than a dozen laser lights cre­at­ing a mag­i­cal el­e­ment for Christ­mas cour­tesy of the Cel­e­bra­tions Fund - a joint ini­tia­tive be­tween the Port Dou­glas Cham­ber of Com­merce and Cairns Re­gional Coun­cil.

Coun­cil’s Dou­glas re­gion man­ager Liz Col­lyer en­cour­aged singers of all per­sua­sions to come along to Car­ols Karaoke and belt out some of their fes­tive favourites.

“We are look­ing for peo­ple to lead the car­ols karaoke-style," she said.

“We will have song books and the karaoke singers can lead and ev­ery­one in the crowd can sing along.”

Ms Col­lyer will MC the event with Moss­man nurse and self­con­fessed king of karaoke Stephen Old­ham.

“We are en­cour­ag­ing fam­i­lies to bring a rug to sit on and have a pic­nic,” Ms Col­lyer said.

There will also be a fundrais­ing sausage siz­zle cooked by the SES and brochures for vis­i­tors on ac­com­mo­da­tion around town.

To book your favourite carol, con­tact Ms Col­lyer at the coun­cil on 4099 9410 and be­gin prac­tis­ing for the free event next Tues­day, De­cem­ber 20, from 7pm in Mar­ket Park.

“You can reg­is­ter on the night but if you have got a favourite carol it’s best to reg­is­ter and do some re­hearsals at home, in the shower,” Ms Col­lyer said. “Come along and have some fun and share the spirit of Christ­mas Port Dou­glas-style.”
