Coffs to share in Christmas spirit

CAROLS, fireworks and plenty of Christmas cheer are on the running sheet this Saturday night.

Coffs Coast Carols is back and everyone is invited to roll out a picnic rug and enjoy the spectacular show which will feature live music performances, children's entertainment and, of course, the breathtaking fireworks display.

The free community event is hosted by the Coffs Harbour City Council in partnership with the Lifehouse Church, C.ex Group, and other local businesses.

Attendees will be given a songbook when they arrive and are encouraged to sing along with the Lifehouse music team and special guests who will be performing the carols.

The Lifehouse choir have been rehearsing for the past six weeks, and their performance will be at a whole new level this year.

Children's entertainment group The Toads will also be putting on a show, and rides will be available on the night from 5pm.

Santa will also be making a special appearance.

Food stalls will be operating on the night, but attendees can also bring their own picnic hampers.

Mayor Denise Knight is excited for the carols after crowds of more than 6, 000 people attended last year.

"The Carols are the perfect time to stop, reflect and celebrate the spirit of Christmas with family, friends and visitors.

"The community really enoyed the great entertainment and spectacular fireworks display last year and I'm looking forward to seeing everyone come along to support this event again.”

The Coffs Coast Carols will be held at Brelsford Park on Saturday from 6:30pm.

Attendees are reminded that it is an alcohol-free event and glass is not permitted on the grounds.
