Major crowd at Kingaroy carols

MORE than 1000 people sung their hearts out after the sun set on Sunday.

The breeze was cool and spirits were high as the community gathered to sing Christmas carols and celebrate the nearing holiday.

Families with their blankets and chairs sprawled across the front of the Kingaroy Town Hall and sang along with choirs from Kingaroy State High School, Kingaroy State School, the South Burnett Youth Choir and St John's Lutheran School.

The carols were accompanied by music played by the Kingaroy State High School stage band with the night's hit MC, school teacher Matt Phillips.

Carols committee member Felicity Cavill said it was an amazing feeling in the forecourt.

"It was really joyous," she said.

"The forecourt came alive and it was great to see everyone turn out and support the carols.

"It was a really great family atmosphere and everyone seemed to be happy and enjoying themselves and celebrating."
