‘Tis the season to be jolly, to round up the family, gather up the picnic blankets and chairs, and set up under the stars for a candlelit night of carols and entertainment in the fresh evening air.

Carols by candlelight is an Australian tradition, and it’s easy to see why – our warm summer nights are perfect for getting into the festive spirit in the outdoors.

The Hanna Park Carols in North Richmond is the biggest carols event in the Hawkesbury region. This year the park will become a hive of Christmas activity on Sunday 21 December. There will be kids’ activities from 4.30pm, including jumping castles, a climbing wall, colouring competitions, and an appearance from the NSW Rural Fire Service bound to impress many a young truck-lover. Carols kick off at 7pm, and the word’s out that Mr Claus will be arriving in a helicopter. For more information, see
