Reindeer practice their pitch for Christmas carols in park

HE MAY not be as renowned and revered as Rudolph, Dasher and Dancer but this month it's Leroy the Redneck Reindeer's time to shine.

The Christmas rock star will take centre stage at Warwick's Carols in the Park on December 16, alongside a host of the region's best performers.

Warwick Tourism and Events CEO Tracy Vellacott said the majority of this year's entertainers were "brilliant" upcoming talents.

"All of these young people are putting in an immense amount of time to rehearse and stage a professional carols production," she said.

"We greatly appreciate them stepping up to share their talent and the Christmas spirit with the community."
