Families flock to carols

INNES Park's Carols By The Sea on Sunday has been hailed a big success, with more than 500 people attending.

"There was a pretty big crowd," organiser Judy Mason said.

"There were a lot of people. We gave out glow sticks so when it was dark we had all these fairy lights."

Mrs Mason said children at the event were well catered for, with free face painting and the arrival of Santa in a police car.

"I don't think there was child who attended who didn't have their face painted," Mrs Mason said.

"It was just lovely, it was everything we hoped it would be."

Mrs Mason said the next big event she was helping with would be the Australia Day Carnival in the Park.
