Songs by the lake

Axel, Stella-Rose, Taj, Charlie and Lennix prepare for the carols.

Emerald Carols by the Lake will bring together locals and visitors to celebrate the festive season.

Barry Plant Emerald is sponsoring the Friday 14 December event, which will start with a community picnic from 6pm to 8pm.

Local artists and the Cardinia Civic Concert Band will lead the carols from 8pm to 9.30pm.

There’ll be food stalls and the Emerald Lake cafe will be open.

Attendees can bring a picnic, a rug and a torch.

There’ll be plenty of free parking, and LED candles will be available.

The event is alcohol-free.

“The entire team at Barry Plant Emerald strongly believe in supporting the community that has supported us throughout the years,” a spokesperson said.

“The Carols by the Lake is a wonderful opportunity for our organisation to continue our proud tradition of giving back to our community members.

“This great initiative brings together both local residents and visitors to our much-loved Emerald Lake Park and surrounds to celebrate the festive season.

“We hope it’s an enjoyable evening for everyone.

“We hope that 2019 brings you good health and fulfils all of your hopes and expectations.”
