Christmas carols comeback to Coffs
AN APPEARANCE by the man in red, jolly carolers and famous local faces, there was plenty of Christmas cheer at the Coffs Coast carols this evening.
It was a quintessentially Australian summer carols with the scent of Aerogard wafting through the balmy sky at Brelsford Park as hundreds carolers raised their voices and sung Christmas classics.
The night kicked off with a fun performance by children's band, The Toads followed by a cultural dance by Gumbaynggirr youth.
A wave of glow sticks, electric wands and candles illuminated the sky as local dance troupes and choirs took to the stage to perform carol's favourites such as Santa Claus is Coming to Town and Jingle Bell Rock.
Spicing up the carols mix, rock icon Jon English harked back to the 60s with John Lennon's Happy Xmas (the war is over).
Coffs Harbour Mayor Denise Knight, Coffs Harbour Masterplan committee chair Rod McKelvey and Lifehouse pastor Mark Wray hosted the event.
The trio represented the three organisations that banded together to bring carols back to Coffs Harbour after a year hiatus.
A fireworks show wrapped up the evening.
