THE KEMPSEY District Silver Band will present a huge Christmas carols bonanza at the Kempsey Racecourse on Saturday December 15, with gates opening at 5.30pm.
This family friendly event hopes to bring the community together in the spirit of Christmas.
The program will include popular and traditional carol sing-a-longs, food stalls which support local community groups, market stalls, and of course, the big, jolly fella in – Santa.
The rides company is offering $10 armbands, which means the youngsters with a zest for fun can enjoy unlimited rides for the night.
Band spokesperson Simone Farrell admitted they were more like a band on the run in 2017 as they underestimated the crowd for the event.

“Last year we were amazed by, and unprepared for the number of people who attended the carols, hence, it was a little chaotic – and the rain didn’t help,” Simone said.
“This year we have made some major improvements to the sound production thanks to the support of the Kempsey Shire Council and the Arts Council to bring you a bigger and better carols experience.”
So get your Santa hats and warm up your singing voices to celebrate with the band this festive season.
On the night there will be a gold coin donation at the door, with all proceeds staying locally and heading to the Kempsey District Silver Band.
