Carols in the Town park

Yesterday was the Salvation Army’s Carols in the Town park, held at Lake Tuggeranong. It started at 5.00pm, but even with careful planning, i did not get there until 5.30pm.

There was a petting zoo, jumping castle, inflatable slide, face painting, music and ….. Santa!

Santa gave out bags of lollies – my kids were on a sugar high for hours.

The number of families was amazing. We had to use pink zinc to be able to identify our kids.

They handed out glowsticks, and the kids thought that they were great.

Finished up at 8.30pm, just in time to throw very tired kids into beds. The house was illuminated by multiple glowsticks…

I am looking forward to next year.

I didn’t bring a camera, last thing to pack, but it was on the bed when I got home. If anyone else went, and took pictures, it would be nice to share as it was a lot of fun.

We went to and thought it was a lovely family event. And baby iggle piggle got the closest to Santa he has this year yet- although at the arms reach he took the lollies from Santa you might have thought Santa was toxic..
