A starry starry night of traditional Carols and kids fun
Come along to Boyd Park on 14 December 2014 for the North-East Baptist Christmas Carols.
There are a lot of Christmas Carols around during December, and indeed I have written about a lot of them in my articles. However, these Carols look to be one of the better ones around for kids activities.
Starting at 3.30pm there's a huge range of fun things to do for children. Entry to the festival is free but some of the activities may have a cost.
Children can try out the rock climbing wall or have fun on the jumping castle Excite the littlies with a pony ride and there's also a gladiator competition.
For the more creative kids, they can decorate a cookie or Christmas card to take home to mum, dad or their grandparents.
There will also be fairy floss and face painting.
And of course, happy tummies are happy mums and dads, with a free sausage sizzle and drinks for sale.
At 6.30pm the community Christmas carols start. The North East Baptist Choir sings a range of traditional and modern Christmas favourites. There will also be poems, talks, prayers and celebration of all things Christmas. This is one of the more traditional Christmas carol events, with plenty of good family fun, music and entertainment to celebrate the meaning of Christmas.
Pastor Peter Cossgrove commented, 'Last year we gave out 600 sausages and this year we are anticipating giving out 800. Local residents loved the opportunity to catch up with people in their area and appreciated not having to spend money entertaining the family. There was a lovely community feel last year and we are looking forward to an even bigger and better festival this year.'
The Carols are on at Boyd Park, Nundah with activities starting at 3.30pm and Carols starting at 6.30pm on 14 December 2014.
