Carols by Candlelight

On this beautiful summer's evening I, along with my son and his girlfriend and several thousand other Canberrans, attended the 61st Carols by Candlelight service in Commonwealth Park. It was a wonderful evening of music and relaxation. Most families took a picnic tea to eat on the lawns as they listened to the Christmas music and joined in the singing.

The crowd builds as the sun sets.
