Ivanhoe Park was filled with families on Saturday 15 December for Banyule City Council's Carols by Candlelight. The crowd enjoyed the pre-show activities and delicious food from the onsite food trucks from 6:30pm, before the Carols main stage program kicked off at 7:30pm!

The crowd sang along with an impressive range of Australian and local performers, including Liz Cherry from the Australian Army Band, Colin Lillie, Seth Henderson and the Diamond Valley Brass Band. The Australian Children’s Choir and The Kazoos were also a feature for 2018.
To top off the festivities, Santa himself joined in the choir before before taking a trip down The Boulevard Christmas Lights in a vintage fire truck!

Carols Songbook + LED Battery Powered Candles
This year, the Carols by Candlelight Songbook and LED battery powered candles, were available to collect from the Banyule Customer Service marquee for a gold coin donation. All proceeds raised went to the Banyule Children’s Gift Appeal, which is an annual initiative that provides quality new gifts, toys and vouchers to local families experiencing financial hardship. Over many years the community has supported 1000’s of families and their children.
All of the LED battery powered candles were generously donated to us by Banyule's very own, Battery World Greensborough. A very special thank you to Elias and his team for this very generous donation.
