Christmas is traditionally a time when loved ones get together to celebrate and be thankful. There's something magical about Christmas as friends and families come together no matter the distance or time apart. What better way to celebrate together as a family by attending the free Broadbeach Christmas Carols, a popular event for all ages located at the well-known tourist destination, the Gold Coast.
Held on Saturday night, 15th December 2012, the Christmas carols start from 6pm, however, the event attracts hundreds of onlookers so it is advisable to arrive early to secure a good seat for your family. Seating is BYO so take a rug and set yourself up on the outdoor lawn in front of the stage and under the moonlight. From 3pm there are plenty of kids' activities to entertain like the petting zoo, jump n' slide castle, merry-go-round and more so the kids won't get restless waiting for the carols to begin.
• Free live entertainment. A heap of singers, dancers and actors performing live including Sarah De Bono, Marina Prior, Michael Cormick and the Boogie Woogies singing all your favourite Christmas hits.
Each year tens of thousands flock to the Gold Coast to enjoy a typical sun, surf and sand holiday. Most of the accommodation is booked to capacity at Christmas time (some people book one year ahead of time) but if you're lucky you may still be able to secure a nice place for your family to stay after the event and enjoy some holiday time together. This is particularly important if you've driven a long way to attend the Christmas carols. You can check out what Gold Coast accommodation is available at Christmas time by visiting one of the top online accommodation specialists Wotif. They offer cheap deals, instant confirmation and online booking.
This free community event supports the Gold Coast Community Fund and provides valuable funds to the 92.5 Gold FM's Give Me 5 For Kids. The event is disabled friendly (allocated disabled parking and toilets). Other facilities include a car park, a kiosk for snacks and a shaded area.
