BRASSALL'S Christmas in the Park is an event not to be missed.

Christmas carols will echo across Sutton Park from 6pm tomorrow, and Santa will make a special visit to meet the children of Ipswich.

Cr Cheryl Bromage said the free community celebration, which had run for 17 years, had become a tradition for many families.

She said this year's program was jam-packed with local talent.

"There will be many more spectacular voices this year including crowd favourite Thomas Doherty, from the smash hit musical Billy Elliott," she said.

Cr Bromage said entertainment would also be provided by the RSL Youth and Community Band and many local choirs.

The stage show will run for three hours, and patrons are urged to come early to get a spot, and bring picnic blankets and chairs.

Cr Bromage said the onstage performances would be complemented by plenty of other free activities and rides.

"[There'll be] lots of family-friendly entertainment and free rides and face-painting for the kids," she said.

Santa will arrive at Sutton Park about 7pm.

Cr Bromage said the carols evening was aimed at allowing residents from across Ipswich to come together and celebrate the festive season with fun and song.

Entry and children's rides are free, and food will be on sale at stalls.

A carols song book will appear in the QT tomorrow.

Sutton Park is in Workshops St, Brassall.
