Great crowds at Christ­mas car­ols

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

FAM­I­LIES from right across the Whit­sun­days got into the fes­tive spirit with hun­dreds turn­ing out for the Ro­tary Club of Air­lie Beach’s Christ­mas Car­ols at the Whit­sun­day PCYC on Sun­day.

The tra­di­tional Car­ols on the Beach event was moved from the Air­lie fore­shore to the PCYC due to weather and around 700 res­i­dents en­joyed a great night of ev­ery­one’s favourite Christ­mas songs.

Stu­dents from the Can­non­vale State School made up the choir and there were plenty of proud par­ents in the au­di­ence as the kids belted out tra­di­tional favourites and some more mod­ern Aussie car­ols.

Chil­dren of all ages had a great time at the event with a num­ber of fan­tas­tic en­tries in the Christ­mas­themed dress-up com­pe­ti­tion and a spe­cial visit from Santa among the high­lights of the night.

Ro­tary thanked all the lo­cal busi­nesses who had sup­ported the event, in­clud­ing ma­jor sup­port­ers the Air­lie Beach Mu­sic Cen­tre.

CHRIST­MAS CHEER: Terri-Lee and Emily Guthrie got their photo taken with Santa at the Ro­tary Christ­mas Car­ols at the Whit­sun­day PCYC on Sun­day night.
