Carols have a new nativity scene, but won't conclude with fireworks this year

From the Carols by Candlelight team: 

Carols by Candlelight will not be concluding with the traditional fireworks this year.

In  a last minute turn of events the Committee has not been able to obtain approval from the Council due to the imposition of new risk management requirements of which we were advised only last Thursday.

There is neither the time nor resources available to meet these requirements or any possible alternative entertainment.

Disappointing as this is for us at such late notice, Carols by Candlelight will be a fabulous night of celebrating Christmas as a community and we would love to see you there. 

Bring a picnic blanket or chair and please come together for a wonderful evening of food and family activities from 6pm and carol singing from 7pm.

Battery operated candles and carol programs will be available on the night.

This year Everything Geraldton will kindly be providing lyrics online for those who want to sing carols by the light of their smart phone or tablet. Head to

We are excited to unveil new this year, our nativity photobooth.

Come join the action on Sunday evening at 6pm at Maitland Park for family activities and food stalls including free photo opportunity in this stable photobooth (bring your own camera or mobile phone, costumes will be provided for kids - including Mary, Joseph, Kings, Shepherds, animals, and angels). Carols by Candlelight will start at 7pm. Going to be a great evening!
