Fireworks, not storms, light up 2014 Queen’s Park Carols

The forecast storms stayed away, and in the end, it was a perfect summer evening for the 2014 4GR Mayoral Carols by Candlelight in Queen’s Park.

Another strong crowd of around 10,000 turned out for what the organisers are saying is the best Carols event yet.

“It’s easy to say every year, ‘that was our best ever!’” said event coordinator Dave Schenk. “But I believe the guys who put the show together this year did the best job they have ever done.”

Kids enjoyed the rides and danced to the music, while families sat together enjoying picnic dinners and the carols.

And while the evening concluded with a spectacular fireworks display, Dave hopes the event is more than just a bang.

“It’s an incredible privilege, as an expression of the Church of Toowoomba, to put on this event for the council and sponsors,” said Dave.

“But we also see it as an opportunity to plant some seeds and bring some focus to what we believe is the most important story behind Christmas.”
