Dunsborough's Carols in the Park brought Christmas miracle

About 300 people of all ages turned out in the sprinkling rain on Friday December 17, to join in with the Dunsborough Progress Associations Carols in the Park.

As the rain looked to set in, carollers and the audience braved it out and as the nativity began, the rain cleared like a Christmas miracle.

More of a miracle were the players who participated in the Nativity - turning up out of nowhere to don costumes and make their way to the stage.

Little angels, and Joseph and Mary were very excited despite being a little soaked while waiting. They were joined by shepherds and wise women.

The carol singers from Dunsborough sang contemporary tunes that had the young children very much engaged while it sprinkled.

Comments from the audience reiterated that this was a great opportunity for young people to sing confidently and safely in front of a home crowd with professional sound by SoundPro and musicians sponsored by Private Properties and the City of Busselton.

Progress Association Chair, Jacquie Happ said it was a terrific night out despite the inclement weather, and it was a soulful community event before the real holiday celebrations begin.

"The town is full of people with heart, something that we need to remember as our town changes. We make the community not the buildings," she said.

Santa Claus arrived amid sirens and flashing lights having been collected by the Dunsborough Police.

He said a few words reminding all the children to be good before being whisked away again to catch up with Rudolph and the reindeers.
