The 2017 Ocean Grove Carols in the Park promises to be bigger and better than ever.
More than 3000 locals and holiday makers attended last year, making Carols in the Park the largest annual concert gathering on the Bellarine Peninsula.
The cast includes Goanna Band and The Voice star Marcia Howard singing with another much-loved ensemble, the Geelong Symphony Orchestra.
Marcia will be joined at the Carols in the Park by the ever-popular Sarah Carroll, Perri Espinoza, Nicole Hickman, Diane Gardner, Marion Melrose, Dan Eastwood, Stewart Firth and the glorious Geelong Harmony Choir.
The Carols start at 7pm, on Sunday 10 December, with savvy families turning up early to get a good position.
Sausages, pancakes and drinks will be available.
Our Lady Star of the Sea, Surfside and Ocean Grove primary schools will be performing on stage and of course Santa will be summoned to make an appearance.
Bay FM’s Mark Hyland will be Master of Ceremonies and for the little ones, there will be face painting and plenty of pre-show activities.
In a long-standing tradition, you are encouraged to place an unwrapped children’s gift under the Christmas tree on stage. The gifts go to needy Cottage by the Sea children.
Entry is by donation and the gate takings go towards the new disability special accommodation being built in Draper Street.
