WE WON'T STAGE in 2020
Due to Covid 19 restrictions!

BUT just wait for a special surprise
on Sunday 13th December!


Whyalla's LIONS GFG Alliance "Carols In The Park" has announced the event will not stage in 2020, but plans to return better than ever in 2021.

Chairman and Lion Graham Campbell said his event committee - comprising members of the Whyalla, and Mount Laura Lions Clubs, and Stageshow Coordinators Mark Tempany & Alison Hams - had met recently to discuss the logistics of continuing preparations towards the event which was set to stage on Sunday 13th December.

"We voted unanimously that it was impossible to implement the Covid 19 Management Plan legislated by SA Health - "Carols" is such a huge event we couldn't possibly provide the manpower required to ensure adequate contact-tracing and social distancing" he said.

Stageshow Manager Mark Tempany said that while it was recognised that Covid controls may relax further by December that the uncertainty of what those changes might mean for the event, and the fact that any changes would require a total re-submission for approval (or not) to SA Health meant the sensible choice was to sit out 2020.

""Carols In The Park" holds such a special place in Whyalla's heart and our planning commences in early February each year. We're disappointed to see our first suspension since we began Stageshow Management in 2006 - but this decision is the responsible one for our crew and our community" he said.

Mr Tempany also indicated that - while Whyalla may not be able to celebrate Christmas as a community under the stars in Civic Park this year - there may yet be a very special surprise from the Carols crew before Christmas Day.

"Our cast know how special this event is to our town and we're desperate to see it still add some Christmas cheer in 2020. While we can't see everyone in person this year - stay tuned for a surprise that just might bring a little bit of "Carols" to everyone at home on 13th December!" he said.


To find out what our BIG SURPRISE is....
STAY TUNED right here!
