Community Carols and Fireworks Spectacular 2014
Saturday 13th December once again saw the Carols and Fireworks Spectacular held in the grounds of Harrington Park Public School. It was a nervous time of preparation for all concerned as once again the weather was quite threatening. We thank God that he blessed us with a fine and dry evening.
Crowds began arriving around 6.30pm. Free bags containing gifts from our wonderful sponsors, song sheets and information sheets were handed to families on arrival.
During the evening, entertainment was provided by the following groups:
Harrington Park Public School – Hot Pepper Skippers
Elizabeth Macarthur High School Singers
Harrington Park Anglican Church
Basil the Puppet
Rebecca’s Dance Studio
Leah Cassar Singers
Also available on the night were free craft activities for pre-schoolers, and jumping castles. For a small charge older children could be challenged by an ‘amazing’ maze.
Various types of Gloware were also available to light up the night.
A wonderful fireworks display was presented by Foti International Fireworks.
Available for purchase during the evening were steak and sausage sandwiches, coffee, soft drinks, ice-creams and pop corn. As usual many families brought their own picnic to consume during the evening. Please note that this was an ‘alcohol free’ event.
Money raised by donation on the evening goes to Anglicare to assist in their support of struggling families in our local area. This year we are delighted to be able to give $538 from donations made on the night.
An estimated crowd of 1600 people enjoyed a wonderful evening.
Sincere thanks to the local businesses and organisations who sponsored this great community event:

Macarthur Anglican School
