Park set to come alive

By Corowa Free Press

John Foord Oval will again come alive with Christmas cheer for the annual Carols in the Park event next week.

This community event will be held at John Foord Oval on Wednesday, 18 December, beginning at 6pm with free kids activities. 

Residents are invited to come and sing along to traditional and modern carols performed from 7pm by the Corowa Baptist Church band, who will be supported by local talented musicians, Sing Australia and Corowa combined churches choir. 

“The combined churches would love everyone to come along and bring your Christmas cheer and your kids and join us in celebrating this joyful time of the year. We would like to share the “peace” that Jesus brings at Christmas,” event organiser Rowena Black said.

Attendees can bring their own picnic tea or enjoy the food stalls available including Phat Pizza, twist potatoes, fairy floss, donuts, snow cones, a sausage sizzle and a coffee cart. There will also be free children’s entertainment – a jumping castle, petting zoo, face painting, balloon animals, kid’s cars for the toddlers and LED candles.

“This community event could not be done without the support of the Federation Council, Corowa Events (Chamber of Commerce), Focus Engineering, Corowa combined churches, Corowa-Rutherglen Football Club and Albury Light and Sound,” Ms Black said.

“We are so excited to bring you this community event. The Corowa Baptist Church band and singers have been practicing a number of nights a week, ready to join with you in singing many of our favourite carols.

“All invited! So, come as you are.”
