Cessnock City Council’s Carols in the Park is set to go off with a big bang on Friday 2 December 2016 from 4.30pm at Baddeley Park.

After last year’s overwhelming success the well-loved Christmas carols will be back with markets, music, fireworks and Project Cessnock’s Elf Challenge.

Cessnock City Council’s Mayor, Councillor Bob Pynsent said this is a fantastic event for the entire community.

“It is very special to be able to celebrate the festive season as a community and a good opportunity to spend time with family and friends enjoying great entertainment”, Cr Pynsent said.

After just falling shy of breaking the world record for having the most Christmas Elves congregated in one place, Project Cessnock will be attempting to break the record one last time.

Project Cessnock’s Nicole Spears said they are asking all of the community to get involved in the spirit of Christmas and help break the record.

This annual event has become the heart of the Cessnock local government area’s Christmas celebrations with an array of entertainment for the whole family.

Country music star and local resident Tara Naysmith is welcomed back to the stage as MC. While Santa’s Little Helpers are expected to put on a wonderful performance, the 14 piece big band is made up of talented musicians from across the Hunter.

This year’s event will also include the Funky Junk Flea Markets from 4.30pm and a fireworks display to conclude the evening.
