WARM up those vocal cords and adorn your best Christmas outfit; Shepparton’s annual Carols by Candlelight event is coming to town.
This Sunday, December 23, the Queens Gardens is going to come alight, with songs of peace and joy echoing throughout the area. The free event is presented by Greater Shepparton City Council and commences at 6:30pm; however, it is recommended that guests arrive early in order to be assured a seat.
The family-friendly event will feature music from local artists and youth performers alongside Shepparton Brass and Wind and Goulburn Valley Pipes and Drums.
Of course, Santa Claus himself will be present at the carols and there will be food trucks, coffee, ice cream and glow sticks available for purchase. The event will conclude with a spectacular pyrotechnic display, presented by GMCU.
