Community festive fun for Maryvale
MARYVALE is joining in on the merry fun of the holiday season with Carols in the Park today.
The township will be hosting their festivities this afternoon, ahead of the Warwick event on Sunday.
Among the co-ordinators is Rhonda Badby, who said preparations were coming together well for the annual event.
The event is a good option for Maryvale locals to catch up with others in their community for some holiday fun.
There will even be a visit from Santa to bring in the Christmas spirit.
"Santa will be arriving in a special little bush taxi," Mrs Badby said.
"He'll be handing out lollies and the school kids will be singing some carols for us. "We'll be having a barbecue and anyone who makes a purchase will automatically go into our raffle draw.
"This is just a nice local event that's been going for a fair few years now."
Mrs Badby said the event was BYO nibbles, drinks and chairs, allowing people to have a leisurely afternoon among friends.
Maryvale State School students will also be performing a few Christmas Carols and there will also be arts and crafts to keep the kids happy.
It all kicks off today from 4pm at the park opposite The Crown Hotel in Maryvale.
