Family fun returns to Cornwall Park with the 2013 edition of Christmas in Cornwall Park.

The annual event to be held on Sunday 15 December, is a celebration of the festive season with a Family Fun Day from 3pm till 7pm followed by Christmas carols for you to sing along with performed by the The Deco Bay Napier Port Brass band.

Creative Hastings General Manager Pitsch Leiser says “Christmas in the Park has become an important event for all the community. It will be the 128th time that carols have been held in the park at Christmas. We have changed the music lineup for this year but there will still be the traditional carol singing that everyone enjoys at this time of the year. Christmas in the Park will again be a fun afternoon and evening of entertainment with a focus on creating a great Christmas atmosphere.”

The Family Fun Day includes loads of entertainment for the kids including bouncy castles, games and the ever popular Splash Pad, with Santa making an appearance at around 5pm.

Main stage entertainment will include the ever popular Rag Tag Scoobie Good Time Band, Devils Elbow and The Flukes.

Community Carols in the Park will begin at 7pm with the music being provided by The Deco Bay Napier Port Brass Band. They will be joined by the Hawke’s Bay Community Choir and Joe Christensen and friends, and together they will present a programme of all your favourite Christmas Carols.

During the evening the winner will be announced of the “Where is Santa’s Reindeer” competition. The competition encourages kids of all ages to listen for clues on Classic Hits 89.5fm each weekday from Wednesday 4 December between 8 and 8.30am as too where Santa’s Reindeer are hiding around Hastings. Entries can be placed in a box at Christmas in the Park and all correct entries will go in the draw to win a brand new bike from K Mart.

Entry forms are available from Hastings and Havelock North i-Sites, Santa’s Wonderland in the Hastings CBD Mall, and K Mart Hastings
