Family members in tune at carols
GLOW sticks replaced candles as more than 200 people celebrated the Alstonville community Christmas carols and market on Friday night.
The Apex Pavilion at the Alstonville showgrounds was packed with members of the community eager to sing everything from traditional carols like Silent Night to songs with a distinctly Australian twist.
The carols were organised by the combined churches of Alstonville.
"It's something we can work on together as a project and it was lovely that all the families were quite close together so you could hear everyone singing," said Alstonville Anglican Church Minister Trent Minton.
Alstonville and Wollongbar Chamber of Commerce member Suzie Levot said the market included 30 stallholders selling everything from stone art, jewellery, handicrafts and face painting.
"It has been washed out a couple of times so it was really nice to see people come back and support the night and we had a great turnout."
