As you may have guessed, many events and carols have been cancelled for 2020. However, there are still some events occurring, of course with restricted numbers due to COVID.


Carols in the Park, Hunters Hill

When: Sunday 6th December 2020 from 6-9pm

Where: Boronia Park Ovals, Hunters Hill

Bookings for free tickets are now open for the Carols in the Park event on 6 December 2020, to be held from 6pm to 9pm at Boronia Park.

Residents are invited to kick off the Christmas season with a casual BYO picnic and a free fireworks display, getting together with family and friends on the oval at Boronia Park.

Bring your picnics and meet up safely in a large, physically distanced space, while enjoying some seasonal music and a visit from Santa.

The evening will conclude with an annual fireworks display.

In keeping with NSW Heath regulations and guidelines, tickets are limited to 500 people on a first-come-first-served basis and open to residents only. The Hunters Hill website shows the event as full booked but the Eventbrite listing allows registrations and says they can accommodate up to 2,000 people.
