The Bowen community gathered together and celebrated the upcoming Christmas celebrations in style, with their Community Christmas Carols last weekend.
Seeing a great turnout, on par with pre-covid numbers, the Rotary Club of Bowen were excited to see people flicking to join in the festive spirit.
“It seemed like the whole town was there,” said Mark Steen, Bowen Rotarian who was instrumental in organising the annual event.
“The Rotary Club of Bowen has been putting on the carols for years, and it’s always great to see all our hard work pay off.”
With performances from groups such as Bowen Flexi Care, Kidz at the Beach, Good Start Early Learning Centre, Bowen State School, St Mary’s Catholic School, and Queens Beach State School, the night culminated in great singing and festive excitement.
“It was quite beautiful,” Mark explained.
“And of course Santa made a visit, which is always a great time for the children. Really everyone who got involved in the evening had a great time, and that’s all we ask for.”
