Hume’s Christmas night of nights is around the corner!

Much loved singer and actor Johnny Ruffo will host a fantastic cast, featuring pop sensation Chantoozies, Australia’s favourite blue heeler, ABC Kids’ Bluey and amazing local performers, at Hume Carols by Candlelight on Saturday 7 December.

Mayor of Hume City, Councillor Carly Moore said that more than 10,000 people were expected to attend the event, which is a great opportunity to celebrate the festive season.

“Each year people gather at ANZAC Park in Craigieburn to enjoy the free and family friendly Hume Carols by Candlelight,” Cr Moore said.

“We have some of Australia’s best entertainers to get you into the spirit of the season.

“Along with some of the best entertainment, Hume Carols by Candlelight will also offer a range of food trucks for people to choose from.

“I’m looking forward to seeing Craigieburn ANZAC Park full of families, enjoying the music, food and free entertainment.”

The event commences at 5pm and concludes with a spectacular firework display at 9.20pm.
