Carols by Candlelight

The 2013 Cairns Regional Council Carols by Candlelight was a great success helping to raise funds to provide 800 hampers to less fortunate members of our community.

Joining fantastic local groups and performers such as Chris Lloyds, Rhys Tolhurst and K.I.D.S  were Miss World Australia Erin Holland and Steve Judkins of "Water Rats" and "All Saints" fame.

Our thanks to major sponsor McDonalds Restaurants and Masters Home Improvement, SeaFM, The Cairns Post, Weekend Post and Southern Cross TV for their support.

Enjoy the video (above) of this year's event and we hope to see you again for Carols by Candlelight 2014.

width=The 2013 Cairns Regional Council Carols by Candlelight is set to be the best yet with a huge line up of talent from here and across the globe.  Coming home especially to perform at the Carols is 2013 Miss World Australia, Erin Holland.

Erin was born and raised in Cairns, until at the age of 17 when she followed her dreams to Sydney, where she took up a scholarship at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music. Describing herself as vibrant, outgoing and hardworking, Erin hopes to one day be a leading lady on Broadway. Classically trained, Erin is a highly skilled singer, clarinet player and saxophonist.

Also performing this year and visiting from his current home of the USA is Steve Judkins.  Born in Melbourne and coming to Cairns to visit family, Steve is an accomplished performer on stage, TV and screen.  Many of you will be familiar with Steve from his stints on "Water Rats" and "All Saints".

A number of talented local performers will also grace the stage including Carols favourites Chris Lloyds, Rhys Tolhurst and back from their successful visit down south K.I.D.S. 

This year's event is heavily supported by McDonalds Restaurants who are the major sponsor and who are providing the pre-carols entertainment with the Ronald McDonald Magic Show.
