Community Carols and Fireworks Spectacular 2015
The Harrington Park Community Carols and Fireworks Spectacular was again the highlight of the year for many folk. Saturday the 12th of December proved to be fine and cool and under God’s blessing made a perfect evening for this fantastic event.
Crowds began arriving around 5.30pm by which time many faithful workers had already spent hours in preparing the school grounds for the event. Free bags containing gifts from our wonderful sponsors, song sheets and information sheets and some delightful surprises were handed to families on arrival. Four very special bags held ‘Golden Tickets’ which entitled their finders to receive special bonus prizes provided by Harrington Park Pharmacy and Subaru Narellan.
During the evening, entertainment was provided by the following groups:
Rebecca’s Dance Studio
Elizabeth Macarthur High School Singers
Leah Cassar Singers
Harrington Park Anglican Church Carols Band
Basil the Puppet
Ben Pakula and Genesa Lane
Music for the evening was presented by the talented musicians and singers of Harrington Park Anglican Church.
The younger folk who attended were occupied with jumping castles and an obstacle course.
Various types of Gloware were also available to light up the night.
A fantastic fireworks display was again presented by Foti International Fireworks.
Available for purchase during the evening were steak and sausage sandwiches, coffee, soft drinks, water, ice-creams and pop corn. As usual many families brought their own picnic to consume during the evening. As usual 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 announce that the generosity of our local people has resulted in a donation of $566 being made available to that great organisation.
An estimated crowd of 1600 people enjoyed a wonderful evening.
Sincere thanks to the local businesses and organisations who sponsored this great community event:
Narellan Sand, Soil & Garden Supplies
Macarthur Anglican School
Southwest Pools and Spas
Harrington Park Pharmacy
HP Artistry Hair & Beauty
It is anticipated that another Carols and Fireworks spectacular will be held in December 2016.
