Families soak up festive atmosphere at Scone Neighbourhood Resource Centre's Christmas in the Park

THE Scone Neighbourhood Resource Centre’s fifth annual Christmas in the Park went off with a bang on Saturday night with hundreds of local families pouring through the gates of White Park.

Manager Lee Watts said the event was extremely successful and well supported.

“I was so excited to stand with the crowd and look up to sky of colour at the finale of Christmas in the Park,” she said.

“A huge call out to all the sponsors that made the event possible.

“And to everyone that came along and enjoyed Christmas as a community and supported the Scone Neighbourhood Centre, thank you.

“Merry Christmas.”

Families danced the night away with musical entertainment provided by the Oh’s and also the very talented Chloe Hall volunteering on the stage.

Music and fireworks were free thanks to the generosity of sponsors Scone McDonald’s, Joblink Plus, Daracon, JBS, Regional Australia Bank, Upper Hunter Shire Council, Woolworths, MacCallum Inglis, Ray White Dawson Realty, Hunter Valley Bricks & Pavers, Upper Hunter Men’s Shed and Multicultural NSW.
