Sing along at any of these Carols by Candlelight events
Carols by Candlelight is an event that many people and their families attend throughout the world. There are so many famous carols, including:
O Come All Ye Faithful
Santa Clause is Coming to Town
Hark the Herald Angels Sing
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas and more
There are several places in Perth where you can attend these carols with family and friends and I have listed some of them for December, 2017:
1. CITY OF ARMADALE CAROLS
In an annual Christmas tradition, the City of Armadale will be holding a Carols by Candlelight. It will be a family-friendly Christmas event and celebration as it showcases some of the incredible talent in the Armadale area.
The evening begins early with the Christmas Parade through Jull Street Mall and this will feature a variety of well-known colourful characters and performance by local community groups. Follow the parade through to Memorial Park, where Santa Claus will address the audience and share some special words of wisdom with the children in the lead up to Christmas.
Then you will be given a songbook and LED candles to join in the musical spectacular with performances by local schools and community choirs, supported by live music provided by the award-winning Armadale City Concert Band. With thousands joining in the festivities, Carols by Candlelight is the perfect mix of high-quality music, candlelight, families and Christmas spirit, creating an atmosphere like no other.
