The weather bureau is tipping a fine 26-degree day for Sunday's Lions GFG Alliance Carols in the Park.

It’s going to be the perfect day for the perfect Christmas event.

Whyalla is tipped to be blessed with sensational weather for this year’s Lions GFG Alliance Carols in the Park on Sunday.

weatherThe Bureau of Meteorology is forecasting for Whyalla a sunny day of 26 degrees with 0% chance of rain and slight winds south to southeasterly of 15 to 20 km/h.

This forecast along with some refreshing recent rains has Lions club event organiser Allan Smith looking forward to another fantastic family day of carols and entertainment at Civic Park.

“Civic Park is looking nice and green with the recent rains which have really refreshed the park up,” Allan said.

“The forecast looks great, so we’re in for another tremendous event for Whyalla.”

Allan said the organising committee was expecting another crowd in excess of 5000 to the free Sunday event which starts at 7.15pm. This is the eighth Carols in the Park organised by the two Lions clubs in the city, The Lions Club of Whyalla and The Lions Club of Whyalla Mt Laura.

“This event really signifies the festive season for us,” Allan said.

“It’s a wonderful start to the month and so good to see so many of our young people performing at an event that sees all the money raised go back into our community.

"It makes the hard work all seem worthwhile when we see the enjoyment everybody gets out of it.

“When we do our “emu hunt” clean up at the end of the night, we hear so many people humming Christmas Carols as they are leaving.”

And, of course, the invitation has been sent to the North Pole and it’s hard to see why Santa wouldn’t want to attend this year’s Lions GFG Alliance Carols in the Park in Whyalla.

When it comes to the entertainment, returning by popular demand is the legendary Gavin Chandler along with 2017 Whyalla Recording Scholarship winner Breeze Millard.

Young talents Emma Taylor and JJ Payne will also delight along with Romy Foote and the always-popular Glitterbugs.

Whydale Calisthenics Club will be making a return to provide some thrilling entertainment while the Come & Strum Ukulele Band will join the Whyalla Community Brass as pre-show entertainment.

The wonderful dancing Namaste Whyalla group will make its debut while award-winning  local entertainers Mark Tempany and Alison Hams will also find themselves centre-stage.

Glow items, food and drinks are available for sale on the night - and members of the crowd can donate to the annual Carols Christmas Collection which has seen Lions donate well over $25,000 to worthy local causes over the last decade.

It is a free-entry event with the entertainment getting underway at 7.15pm but everyone is welcome to come down early, find their place and prepare themselves for this special night of entertainment.
