Carols evening draws large crowd

It was a strong turnout at last year’s Rotary Carols by Candlelight in Tuncurry, with a visit by Santa, students as young as kindergarten up on the big stage and a sea of festive garb among the audience.

Take a flick through these photographs and see if you can identify any familiar faces in the crowd.

Just one week to go.
