IT IS finally here, Stanthorpe community Carols by Candlelight is only two sleeps away.

On Friday afternoon, hundreds of enthusiastic people will be out in Weeroona Park chanting 'we wish you a merry Christmas' along with many other carols that will fill the park with a magical atmosphere.

MC for the night Greg Thouard said, like every year, it was going to be a night all about children and families.

"Carols is always a great night for families to go out and celebrate the season in a way they wish to,” Mr Thouard said.

"It's the last week of school. It's the last thing of the year for many people, before they go away on holidays or stay locally for Christmas, to go to the park and have some traditional singing of Christmas carols.”

The Granite Belt Senior and Junior Choir, as well as the brass band and lead vocalists, will lead the carols and Mr Thouard hopes for all families to join them.

"The choir sings better and the band plays better when the audience participates,” he said.

To help you out with the carols, song sheets will be available on the night for a gold coin donation.

Glow sticks will also be available and candles are welcome.

There will be a special time for children when the most popular man of the evening will arrive on a sleigh.

The Lions will take care of food and drinks, with a barbecue firing up from 5.30pm.

The brass band will kick off at 6pm and the carols will start about 6.30pm with an approximate finish of 8pm.

So bring some chairs and blankets to Weeroona Park on Friday and enjoy a wonderful evening of Christmas fun.
