It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas in Craigieburn.

Hume council is set to host its annual Carols by Candlelight at Craigieburn’s Anzac Park this Saturday.

The festive event is returning to Craigieburn after the success of last year’s carols, when tens of thousands of people flocked to the event.

This year’s carols will be hosted by singer and stage performer Rob Mills.

There will also be a visit from children’s television characters Hoot and Hootabelle and, of course, Santa.

Local schools, dance groups and choirs are set to perform, alongside the Divine Divas of Sunbury and Naturally Cool Big Band.

The family fun kicks off at 5pm with a jumping castle, face-painting, food trucks and market stalls, with the carols starting at 7pm.

The event will conclude with a fireworks show at 9.20pm.
