With the Bureau of Meteorology rain satellite not looking great, the wise decision was made mid-afternoon to shift Sunday’s Black Head Carols in the Park to the Hallidays Point Public School.
“Our usual crowd was down 75 per cent but around 250 still enjoyed a wonderful night of class performers and fun,” organiser Alan Tickle said.
It was better than the Meyer Music Bowl Carols, was the view of one first time visitor.
“One lady who is new to the area said she had attended many Meyer Music Bowl carols and was blown away by the quality of the music and singers.”
The event was pretty much non-stop entertainment with lead singers from Taree Arts Council participating and supporting local talent.
Both the Kiddies Hut and Hallidays Point Public School also presented items as did the popular Probus Choir.
“Manning Valley Concert Band was superb,” Mr Tickle said.
