Merry folk meet to share the joy

FORGET about rocking around the Christmas tree – the Rockhampton Music Bowl was the place to carol at the weekend.

The Music Bowl echoed with yuletide joy on Saturday night during the annual Carols by Candlelight gathering.

Christmas carollers entertained a crowd of about 1000 people who turned out for the night, setting up their camping chairs on the lawn.

The Carols by Candlelight event, hosted by Rockhampton Venues and Events, is a major event on the Christmas social calendar for Rockhampton.
