Wow What A Night!

Whyalla's LIONS Onesteel Arrium "Carols In The Park" has staged tonight in Civic Park to a massive "biggest ever" crowd.

Cast, crew and audience alike had an absolute blast and perfect weather prevailed as Whyalla celebrated Christmas as a community in spectacular style.

THANK YOU to the Whyalla and Mount Laura LIONS Clubs, all our sponsors, volunteers, cast, crew - and the general public of Whyalla for creating a truly special event.

LIONS Onesteel Arrium "Carols In The Park" proudly invites....
Whyalla to attend & enjoy our 2012 concert
TODAY in Civic Park from 7.15pm.

"Carols In The Park" has grown to become the biggest free concert event
in regional SA and one of which all of us can be extremely proud.

This year our special guests Giggly Kids will be joined by....
BC Boys, Laura Shaw, Whydale Calisthenics Club, Whyalla Players, Peter Brown and Meg & Zandri.

Mayor Of Whyalla, the Hon. Jim Pollock, will officially open the event -

cast & crew who will share their festive cheer in a spectacular night
as Whyalla celebrates Christmas as a community.

Pack your rugs, glow items and best voices -

Winner judged & prizes ready!

Our 2012 Kids Colouring-in Competition WINNER has been judged by
the Mayor of Whyalla - the Hon. Jim Pollock - with his decision ready for announcement in Civic Park on Sunday!

Entries this year numbered in the hundreds, and the overall impressive standard made a final decision very difficult indeed.

When announced our winner will be invited onto the Civic Park stage to join our cast to accept their huge Christmas Prize Basket - as well as to have their commemorative photo taken with Santa and Special Guests the Giggly Kids.



With less than a week to go until LIONS Onesteel Arrium "Carols In The Park" stages in Civic Park, final preparations are well underway.

As the Whyalla and Mount Laura LIONS Clubs work tirelessly to prepare for Sunday 16th December - our all-star cast have completed their final rehearsal for the big show!

Meanwhile entries continue to pour in for the 2012 Kids Colouring-in Competition and the competition's display at Westland Shopping Centre is now in place.

Fingers are crossed for a perfect evening on Sunday - and everyone is now ready for another brilliant celebration of a Whyalla community Christmas!
