CANTERBURY Park will come alive with the sound of Christmas this weekend as the Eaglehawk community hosts its annual carols event.


The event is run by the Eaglehawk Dahlia and Arts Festival and is held in the gardens each year.


Organisers are looking forward to a bumper event, with entertainment for all age groups and are asking schools to encourage students and families to head along and get into the holiday spirit.


Students from St Liborius Primary School got involved this week to join the call for a big crowd.


Organisers hope that this year will see the biggest attendance in the event’s proud history.


“Bring your own seating or rug and join in the festivities and sing along to some great classics, such as Silent Night, O Come All Ye Faithful and welcome Santa with a rousing Jingle Bells,” organiser Laurie Fitzgerald said.


“There are free glow sticks for each child and a free program so you can join in and sing your favourite carol.


“If it’s raining on the night, Carols will be held in the nearby Peter Krenz Leisure Centre in Napier Street, Eaglehawk.


“Encourage your church group, school or work colleagues and their families to come so we’ll have the biggest crowd at this year’s Carols in Canterbury Park.”


The event begins with a free sausage sizzle at 6pm, with the Bendigo Baptist Rock Band, Sing Australia Choir, Eaglehawk Citizens Brass Band, Our Place Minstrels and other artists performing on the night.


The event is alcohol and smoke free.
