Carols still set to welcome new home with Christmas cheer

SANTA is set to touchdown in the Rose City this afternoon for Warwick’s annual Carols in the Park.

Smoke hovering around the region isn’t expected to impact the Christmas joy according to Councillor Yve Stocks.

“I haven’t heard anything to say that they aren’t going ahead, but we’re just keeping positive about it all,” she said.

This will be the first year the carols will jingle bell rock in Queens Park, which Cr Stocks said will hopefully encourage more carollers to come out.

“We’re expecting crowds to be bigger than usual because this year we have more space,” she said.

“It’s a traditional family Christmas carols that are put on by the council for the community to come together and enjoy.

“People are encouraged to bring their own seating and rugs so they can enjoy the carols.”

With all local performers and activities for children to get involved with, Cr Stocks said they wouldn’t let the weather impact the event.

“We’re hoping that it will be an uplifting experience for people and it will be a great opportunity for the community to come together for Christmas,” she said.

“It should be a nice atmosphere under the stars and down by the river – it is usually a lot cooler down in Queens Park.”

The carols will start at 5pm in Queens Park, with a number food stalls available.
