Adelaide is alive with the sound of music
Carolling is a popular tradition and a special event for many families at Christmas time. It is probably one of the most effective ways to get into the spirit of Christmas as it is hard not to be jolly whilst belting out a rendition of 'Jingle Bells'. Most communities in Adelaide hold a local event and the annual Carols by Candlelight at Elder Park is always impressive.

Round up your friends and family, grab your picnic blanket, light your candles and warm up your vocals chords because here is a compilation of just some of the Christmas carol events for you and yours to attend around Adelaide in the next few weeks.
