James Morrison will head a star-studded evening to celebrate the Christmas season at the muchloved
annual Carols by Kingston event.
Kingston Mayor David Eden said Carols by Kingston is a great chance for our community to get
together with friends and family before the holidays and relax in the park to the sounds of Christmas
“This free, family-friendly community event has plenty on offer with fantastic performers, food vans,
kids rides, market gift stalls, a visit from Santa and a spectacular fireworks finale,” Cr Eden said.
“Carols by Kingston marks the start of our popular Season of Festivals with four great events planned
for the coming months.”
Carols by Kingston will feature:
- performances from James Morrison, Vince Jones & pianist Mathew McMahon Wendy Stapleton & the Australian Women’s Choir
- Christmas market stalls including kid’s gardening gifts, handcrafted jewellery, Christmas decorations and a range of home decor and handcrafted items, children’s carnival rides and dedicated children’s area with free arts & crafts, face painting, balloon animals and more
- accessible services including Auslan signing.
Visitors can also help support local community groups at the Edithvale Fire Brigade fundraising
sausage sizzle and by buying a candle to support the Kingston Toy Library.
Carols by Kingston, an alcohol-free event, is on 6.30pm-9.30pm Sunday 10 December at Sir William
Fry Reserve Highett.
