The Carols by the Bay organised by Dennis Walter was a great success this year - last year it was cancelled because of rain. They reckon there were about 10,000 people down at Eastern Beach. Notes from the Addie:
CLOSE to 10,000 residents came together in a festive show of unity at the weekend’s Carols by the Bay.
Performer Denis Walter labelled the night a roaring success and said the coming together of such a large number of locals was touching considering all the challenges currently facing the world.
“There was almost an anticipation ... whether it was because it rained out last year or perhaps with what’s going on in the world, but everyone wanted to embrace the community and be there as one,” he said.
