The winners of the Griffith City Council Star Shopper Campaign will be announced, with more than 10,000 entries in the draw to win a $500 voucher or one of five $100 vouchers.
Those attending the 2021 Carols by Candlelight are encouraged to bring chairs or a picnic rug as seating is not provided.
“While restrictions have eased, the event is being run in accordance with the NSW Health Public Order,” said Mrs Andreazza.
“Attendees must be COVID-19 double vaccinated to attend, children under 16 years who are unvaccinated must be accompanied by a vaccinated adult. Please have your certificate ready upon check in – we understand that this is disappointing for some, but it is essential that the event is run in accordance with current restrictions.”
Council’s Christmas Working Group Chair, Dino Zappacosta said, he was glad to see Carols would be held in Memorial Park.
“With all of the extra fairy lights in trees along Banna Avenue and added lights in Memorial Park, it’s going to be a magical experience,” he said.
