Carols lure 500 at Wonthaggi
A SPECTACULAR night was had by more than 500 people at the Wonthaggi Carols by Candlelight on Sunday.
Despite cold weather at Wishart Reserve, families and friends came together to enjoy a great time of fun and entertainment.
Sausages, drinks, candyfloss, icy poles, face painting and entertainment by a balloonist were enjoyed.
Natasha Crestani compered the event, with carols led by the U3A choir, with the Wonthaggi Citizens Band.
The nativity story was performed by the children from St Joseph Primary School.
A local church group sang two items, one of which was Silent Night in Portuguese. The U3A choir also sang a couple of items and the band played a melody of Christmas carols.
The highlight of the night was when the Evans children, Max, 9, and Brooke, 10, to a hush from the crowd, sang unaccompanied, Do you know what I know?. The crowd gave them the loudest applause of the night.
Before closing in prayer, Pastor Barry Smith gave a short message about peace, hope and reconciliation in families and with friends.
