Thousands sing in the festive season at Carols by Kingston
15 December 2016
Carols by Kingston went off with a bang with thousands of people flocking to enjoy a star-studded line-up, an awesome fireworks display, Christmas market stalls and a visit from Santa.
More than 8000 people joined together for a fantastic night featuring headline performer Kate Ceberano, jazz singer Nina Ferro, Greg Champion performing his ‘Aussie’ versions of Christmas favourites and children’s entertainers The Kazoos.
Kingston Mayor David Eden said the much-loved annual event attracted a record crowd in 2016 and was a great community celebration.
“Council is proud to present four major festivals each year as a chance for our community to join together,” Cr Eden said. “It was great to see so many local friends and families come together to celebrate the festive season,”
Cr Eden said Carols by Kingston marked the start of Kingston Council’s popular Season of Festivals with three more great events planned for the coming months: Globe to Globe World Music Festival, Mordialloc Food, Wine & Music Festival, and the Harvest Festival.
