The combined Churches of Corowa attracted a large crowd for its Carols in the Park on Sunday.

About 400 people filled Bangerang Park to sing along to some traditional and modern carols delivered by the Corowa Baptist Church band and singers.
There was plenty to see and keep the children entertained with a jumping castle, a petting zoo, face painting, snow cones and LED candles to wave around to the music.
The Corowa Baptist Church band and singers had been practicing a number of nights a week in preparation for the event.
Event co-ordinator Rowena Black labelled the combined Churches of Corowa event a success.
“It was a lovely atmosphere down in Bangerang Park and it was nice and shady and green under the trees,” she said.
“We had lots of families down there enjoying the activities like the jumping castle and face painting.
“Everyone was getting excited for Christmas and getting into the spirit of it all.”
Rowena said the carols had been held in RSL Park in previous years and also in the main street.
“We have tried a few things but this year we decided to hold it closer to Christmas and in Bangerang Park,” she said.
“The schools have finished at this time of year and it was great to see lots of families.”
“There was lots of Christmas cheer and Corowa Events organised for Focus Engineering to bring the stage down, which meant we could actually have it in a big open area instead of behind the trees on the mound, so it was nice to have it on the stage.”
