A host of talented local performers including Naturally Cool Big Band, Divine Divas of Sunbury, Victoria K, Get Active Dance plus many more will delight and entertain, before Santa makes a very special visit to ANZAC Park.

Mayor of Hume City, Councillor Carly Moore said Hume Carols by Candlelight is a wonderful community tradition and a brilliant free family-friendly event.

“I’m excited to see ANZAC Park full of families and friends on Saturday night enjoying the fantastic atmosphere,” Cr Moore said.

“Growing up and raising my own children in Craigieburn, I have many fond memories of great evenings out with my family and friends at past Carols by Candlelight events.”
