Voice singer to take stage

Gatton Star - - NEWS -

THE an­nual Gat­ton Christ­mas Car­ni­val will once again take over North Street for an evening of Christ­mas fun on Fri­day.

Lock­yer Val­ley Mayor Tanya Milligan said this year’s line-up also in­cluded stage en­ter­tain­ment, a ham wheel, food stalls ga­lore and plenty more.

“This year’s en­ter­tain­ment will in­clude per­for­mances by FAD Cheer and Dance, Lock­yer Val­ley School of High­land Dance, Queens­land Po­lice Pipes and Drums Band, a fire twirler and a pet­ting zoo in the park,” she said.

This year’s star act is sure to be hit with res­i­dents, both young and old.

She wowed au­di­ences on the hit show The Voice, was cho­sen by Boy Ge­orge to fea­ture on his team and will this year head­line the en­ter­tain­ment at the Gat­ton Christ­mas Car­ni­val: Chris­lyn Hamil­ton has a voice like Aretha Franklin and she’s set to wow au­di­ences when Christ­mas comes early to the Lock­yer Val­ley.

“There will be wrist bands for un­lim­ited rides up for grabs for only $5 and of course Santa will ar­rive at 5.30pm and be on stage at 8.30pm, which is sure to be a thrill for the young­sters.

Win­ners of the Christ­mas Lights and Dec­o­ra­tion Com­pe­ti­tion will be an­nounced on the night, along with the Gat­ton Christ­mas Car­ni­val Colour­ing Com­pe­ti­tion.

The Lo­cal Am­bu­lance Com­mit­tee are calling on vol­un­teers to as­sist with the ham wheel.

LAC trea­surer Dar­ryl Ready said funds raised would go to­wards a pro­tec­tive storm cover for paramedics cars while they were at­tend­ing to emer­gen­cies.

Mr Ready said he was look­ing for peo­ple who could hand out tick­ets and col­lect ticket money: Con­tact Dar­ryl on 0419 709 993.
