For the 24th year, Glen Stewart Park will be filled with the spirit and songs of the season.
Held annually on the third Tuesday of December, Caroling in the Park takes place Tuesday, Dec. 11 from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. just south of the wooden bridge at the park, which is on Glen Manor Drive, just north of Queen Street East.
Once again, Caroling in the Park will feature traditional Christmas carols and contemporary holiday-themed songs with accompaniment by the Salvation Army band and the choir from Beach United Church. Song sheets will be available.
Hot apple cider and hot chocolate will be served and a collection will also be taken up for the Sally Ann.
Santa Claus is also expected to be on hand distributing candy canes to children.
Longtime Beach residents Nancy and Jim Palmer organized the first caroling in the Park sing-a-long in 1988 as a way to bring a little holiday cheer to their community after attending a similar event in Mississauga’s Port Credit neighbourhood.
In recent years, David Breech, the 2006 Beach Citizen of the Year, has organized the community event.
Participants are advised to dress warmly and bring a flashlight.
