Colours of Christ­mas

North West Telegraph - - Front Page - Robert Dougherty

Kieran Hard­ing and Kieren Sparks add a splash of colour to this year’s Hed­land Carols.

Hed­land res­i­dents and vis­i­tors flocked down and gath­ered for the an­nual Hed­land Carols event in Port Hed­land over the week­end.

Around 1500 peo­ple at­tended the C3 Church Port Hed­land show­case of singing, danc­ing and Christ­mas spirit at the McGre­gor Street Oval.

The evening in­cluded a very spe­cial pit stop from Santa at the event on Sun­day, De­cem­ber 9.

Co-hosts Elise Batch­e­lor and David Eck­hart ran the show from the main stage, with crosses to C3 Port Hed­land se­nior min­is­ter David Hooper, who painted a three wise men-in­spired mu­ral through­out the night.

Fam­i­lies also had the chance to shop at mar­ket stalls, try wa­ter slides, a spin­ning teacup ride and a kids’ glad­i­a­tor duel.

As well as Malaysian and Filipino cui­sine, there were donuts, burg­ers, pizza and a firm chil­dren’s favourite, glow­ing fairy floss.
