The Finale - "Carols In The Park" 2007
....for another superb night!
"Carols In The Park" 2007 has staged in Civic Park - and a fantastic night was had by all!
Under clear, cool Whyalla skies the show began with a crowd of 3000 appreciating an opening declaration by the Mayor of Whyalla - the Hon. Jim Pollock - and the Christmas spirit simply flowed from there!

Now LET THE FUN BEGIN....
Feature act The Funkees proved a huge hit with the large crowd - as Poppi, Roxee, Disco D and Turbo got the kids dancing and singing along.
And as the all-star Whyalla cast carolled away - Santa himself appeared for his traditional pre-Christmas visit to "Carols In The Park".
