WHAT IS CAROLS UNDER THE STARS?
Carols Under the Stars is an annual, family friendly community carols event sponsored by Compassion Australia and many local community businesses, in partnership with Abundant Life Church. This is the largest Carols event in Tasmania – in 2017 this event saw approximately 6,000 people join in the Christmas fun & festivities on Lauderdale Primary School Oval. We love Christmas and all that it is; a time for families to gather around the truth of the season and that is one of hope, peace and future through the gift that is Jesus. It is a chance to celebrate together, honor some great community leaders, connect with our community and enjoy all that is great about life in Tasmania, together.
