KAWANA Car­ols by the Beach is back for another year of friendly, fam­ily, fes­tive fun.

There will be some­thing for the whole fam­ily: face paint­ing, gi­ant snow globe, petting zoo, great food and drinks, live en­ter­tain­ment, singers, lo­cal church car­ollers and danc­ing laser light show.

What started as a small Kawana nip­pers event has grown over the years to in­clude not just nip­pers fam­i­lies but ev­ery­one in the re­gion.

The event is a Kawana nip­pers fundraiser and has been or­gan­ised by Kawana nip­pers vice-chair Me­gan Lovell, chair Sirkka Luke and surf sport di­rec­tor Glenn Carter - the event is sure to make waves.

“It’s not just the nip­pers fam­i­lies that show up but all the pro­ceeds do go back to the Kawana nip­pers as well as SSE, the bronze train­ing kids and the Kawana surf club too.

“It’s a time for the com­mu­nity to shine bright,” said Ms Lovell.

Ms Lovell said the team of three have been plan­ning since May but “it feels like we’ve been plan­ning all year.

“I think al­most ev­ery­one who came last year is com­ing back, which is good to see.

“And the car­ols are a big part of the event - a lot of peo­ple want that church con­nec­tion as well,” said the Kawana nip­pers chair.

“The vibe is just one of the best, it’s re­ally great to see ev­ery­one come to­gether.

“It feels like ev­ery­one you know is there.

“So many lo­cal busi­nesses are sup­port­ing the event too, so you’ll go and run into your den­tist or some­one else you wouldn’t nor­mally.

“It’s just fun and fes­tive,” she said.

■ Time: Starts at 3pm with with live mu­sic com­menc­ing at 4pm.
