Who doesn't like getting into the festive season by listening to Christmas carols?
Well, you can at Belmore Park on Sunday, December 19 because Carols in the Park is back.
Well-known Goulburn musician Steve Ruddell, Jeff White from Goulburn's Whitenoise Pro Audio and Geoff and Cathy Bell from Laing Entertainment felt that given the lockdowns and cancelled events due to Covid that they needed to do something to help lift local spirits.
"It's been a fairly ordinary 18 months, so we thought 'let's see if we can get the Carols, which have been an important part of the City's calendar, back up and running this year'," Mr Ruddell said.
"Goulburn Mulwaree Council, The Hibernian Hotel, Goulburn Soldiers Club, Beachless Beauty, Goulburn Workers Club, Margaret O'Neill, Studio 4 Signs, The Bowlo, Hume Conservatorium and Cupitt Wholesale Distribution have all thrown financial support behind the event and we can cannot thank them enough."
Mr Ruddell said the event starting at 5pm had to happen.
"It needs to happen in Goulburn as we didn't have it last year," he said.
"The year before that, it ended early due to smoke from the bushfires."
The free family event will include local artists like Roo Arcus, Jamie Agius, Ooh La La, The Rich Pitcher, Leaving Reality while Hume Conservatorium's staff and students with be joined by Special Guest MC, five-time Golden Guitar winner Pete Denahy.
"It's good to see a lot of local artists giving their time to put this together," Mr Ruddell said.
"In the past, there were a few locals involved, but this year, it's purely and solely Goulburn musicians."
There will also be a visit from Santa.
