Kyabram Ministers' Fellowship representatives (from left) David Willsher (Anglican Church), Gail Roberts and John Roberts (Salvation Army), and John Hosking (Community Church of Kyabram) are keen to get a good crowd along to Memorial Gardens on Friday evening for Carols by Candlelight.

Kyabram’s night of Christmas festivities takes place at Memorial Gardens on Friday.

Celebrations are due to start at 6pm and there will be children’s entertainment and a community barbecue, with gold coin donations going to a community group to help local good causes.

The regular Christmas prize draws, including Kyabram Chamber of Commerce’s KatchYaInKY promotion, with top prizes of a Gold Coast holiday and Kyabram cash vouchers, and the Kyabram Charities Raffle, are scheduled for 7.15pm.

Kyabram Ministers’ Fellowship’s Carols by Candlelight starts at 8.45pm, with Rushworth and District Concert Band to provide the accompanying music.

This year, a choir will lead the singing and an ensemble will perform during the evening.

Another new feature will be a tableau of nativity scenes, with members of local church groups performing the scenes while readings take place.

The night’s entertainment will end with a bang when Kyabram pyro-technician Mr Skye Candy lights up the sky above Kyabram Recreation Reserve at about 9.45pm.

Many Kyabram shops will be operating extended trading hours this weekend, from 9am to 3pm on Saturday and 10am to 3pm on Sunday, to help those who have not yet finished their Christmas shopping.
