Orange’s big Carols night
Orange City Council's Carols by Candlelight is arguably Orange's most popular event for families.
It's an evening where the community comes together to join in song and celebrate the festive season on December 8 from 7pm.
This year musical performances will be by Orange Regional Conservatorium's Orchestra and Chamber Choir, the City of Orange Brass Band and the Canobolas Highland Pipe Band. There will be a dance performance by Colour City Dance and there will be a handful of food items available for purchase but be sure to bring along a picnic rug and a few nibbles.
Glowstix and candles (fake ones) will be available to buy and there will be a merry-go-round and face-painting.
We've been in touch with the North Pole and are working with Santa's agents to see if we can book him in for a visit. They've told us he is incredibly busy at that time of year and can't guarantee anything. However, we have heard, on good authority, if Orange's children are extra kind, caring and clean up their rooms he may be able to squeeze in a quick stop over... spread the word.
