Taylah Bignell, Jae Bowden, Deacon Fisher and Jett Rothe (on the motorbike) prepare for Barooga’s Carols by Candlelight.
Committee member Mel Bowden said this year’s entertainment would include Nicky Goldsworthy and the Barooga Public School choir, as well as carols favourite Trish Hicks, who will make the trip from Queensland to perform.
‘‘Trikki Kids children are going to do a few songs this year as well which will be very cute,’’ Ms Bowden said.
‘‘We also have an Elvis impersonator.’’
Ms Bowden said the Barooga Carols by Candlelight was the biggest in Berrigan Shire and attracted about 700 patrons last year.
She said a special visit by Santa Claus in a fire truck was always a big hit with the children.
‘‘It’s a relaxing night out for families to come together and celebrate Christmas,’’ Ms Bowden said.
‘‘You can bring your own chair and picnic basket or buy the food we have available and the kids can meet Santa.
‘‘It’s just a great night out.’’
Ms Bowden said the entry fee would include a carols booklet so everyone can sing along, as well as a safe-flame candle to light up the gardens when the sun goes down.
She said food and drink would be available for purchase, as well as a raffle with prizes donated by local businesses and face painting for children.
Carols by Candlelight is from 6pm on Sunday, December 15 at the Barooga Community Botanical Gardens.
Entry is $5 for singles and $10 for families.
