HARK, the herald angels will be singing this Saturday when Orange's annual Carols by Candlelight is held at the Northcourt.
The Highland Pipe Band, Orange Brass Band and Orange Regional Conservatorium will all perform on the night, while Colour City Dance will also be involved.
Audience participation is not only encouraged, but expected.
Mayor Reg Kidd, who is quite partial to Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, said the program would be slightly simplified this year to focus on well-known carols.
"People want to get involved with the standards," he said.
"It's a good way for families to come together with their children and grandchildren.
"It's always a fantastic night and I'm very much looking forward to it."
People are welcome to arrive from 5.30pm with their blankets and chairs, with carols beginning at 7.30pm and a rumoured visit from the jolly man in red.
The evening will wrap up at 9pm.
There will be face painting, a jumping castle and other family-friendly activities during the event.
Entry is free, but all money raised from glowstick sales will go towards the free Community Christmas Lunch, which Orange Baptist Church runs on Christmas Day at Orange Function Centre.
The lunch caters for people who might not otherwise be able to enjoy festivities.
Cr Kidd said the donation was made every year and thanked the volunteers who made the luncheon possible.
