Free, Free, Free - Tis truely the season of goodwill
Christmas By Starlight is an annual event which has earned a reputation as one of Queensland's best regional Christmas carols concerts, drawing families from well beyond the boundaries of Redland City on Brisbane's southeast.

Entry to this event is FREE, rides are FREE and public transport to and from the event is also FREE. Tis the season of goodwill after all.

This family-friendly event will begin at 4pm on Saturday 14th December, with an afternoon of free children's activities, roving entertainment, rides and face painting. This is an alcohol-free event.

The Redlands Showgrounds in Cleveland will come alive with food trucks and merchandise stalls run by local not-for-profit community groups and licensed commercial operators.

Some very talented locals will be leading the carol singing on the main stage and include Craig Martin, Carole Williams, Dakota Striplin, Gregory Moore, Leah Lever, Naree Cole, Scott Muller, the Redland City Bands, and the Yulu -Burri-Ba Dancers.

Of course, a visit from Santa is also on the cards.

The evening will end with a bang when a colourful array of fireworks fill the sky over Cleveland.
