Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Christmas -

IT’S a long way from home for North Pole res­i­dent Frosty the Snow­man, and with the Aussie sum­mer heat about to set in he’s a lit­tle wor­ried there may be less of him soon.

Frosty left his snowy home to join the team of fes­tive en­ter­tain­ers for the Bur­swood Park Carols this week­end.

“It’s not great for us snow­men to be out­side un­der the sun in the Perth sum­mer, so we are do­ing ev­ery­thing we can to hold our­selves to­gether for this year’s spe­cial con­cert un­der the stars,” Frosty said.

“As long as I don’t melt the days be­fore, I’ll be there to join in the fun and fes­tiv­i­ties.”

The carols will be held on De­cem­ber 13 with a wide range of live en­ter­tain­ment start­ing from 6.30pm.

Bur­swood Park man­ager Bruce Hawkins said the event was one of the high­lights of Perth’s Christ­mas sea­son.

“The carols, held on the picturesque Bur­swood Park fore­shore, are al­ways well at­tended and full of Christ­mas cheer,’ Mr Hawkins said.

“The banks of the Swan River will come alive with fes­tive spirit.”

The Bur­swood Park Carols boasts per­for­mances from the Can­ning City Brass Band, Johnny Young Tal­ent Team of WA, Take Note Singers and the Coastal Scot­tish Pipe Band WA.

Perth me­dia per­son­al­ity Monika Kos will host the event along­side Graeme But­ler.

More than 4000 peo­ple at­tended the carols in 2014.
