Carols by Candlelight on soon

THE horses are in place, the musicians and choirs are ready and there is under two hours to go until tonight's Carols by Candlelight.

Hundreds of people are expected to flock to North Court for the family fun event.

'Horsey Plane' operator Peter Naylor has invited Orange's youngest residents to come along for a free ride as part of tonight's events.

His 1950s ride has been lovingly restored and is ready and waiting for its first rider tonight.

"People will remember it, they love to talk about it," he said of the historic ride.

Tonight's event will feature entertainment by Orange Regional Conservatorium of Music, Orange Mass Choir and the City of Orange Brass Band.

Bring your own picnic rug and come along from 7pm, entertainment runs from 7.30pm to 8.45pm.

Don't forget to collect your free song book.

A Lions Club barbecue will run as will a coffee and ice cream cart.
