Get into the Festive Spirit with Carols in Queens Park

Tuesday, 14 November 2017

Celebrate the festive season this year with Council’s annual Carols in Queens Park on Sunday, 10 December.

Held in the beautiful Queens Park in Moonee Ponds, this free event is a great opportunity for the Moonee Valley community to come together and enjoy the holiday celebrations with family and friends.

Newly appointed Mayor of Moonee Valley, Cr John Sipek, is looking forward to yet another fantastic Carols in Queens Park, which has seen a remarkable increase in popularity over the past few years.

“Carols in Queens Park is one of my favourite events of the year,” Cr Sipek said.

“It really shows the strength of community in Moonee Valley, and also really embraces what Christmas is actually about.”

Cr Sipek said Council's Carols event has something for everyone this year, with a wonderfully vibrant and diverse entertainment lineup for the evening.

“I think the headline performer Matt Hetherington, who was a finalist on The Voice, will be a really special and impressive act,” Cr Sipek said.

“I am also very much looking forward to seeing some of our local schools perform, like Buckley Park Secondary College, Niddrie Primary School and Keilor Heights Primary School.”

Also included in this year’s line-up is talented young soloist Paris Marie, as well as some highly respected community groups including Moonee Valley Brass, Essendon Choral Society and Moonee Valley Community Choir.

Children’s activities will include a meet and great with Santa Claus and Christmas cookie decorating with all of the delicious materials included.

The free children’s activities will begin at 4.30pm with the Carols Concert scheduled to begin at 6:30pm.

Songbooks and battery-operated candles will be available on site for purchase. Food vendors including Ba Sar, Bianco Latte and The Rotary Club of Flemington BBQ will be on site with some delicious food and drink available for purchase too.

Everyone is invited to come along to this magical evening and enjoy a great night out with family and friends.
