Carols by the Cow
Docklands’ annual community Christmas celebration, Carols by the Cow, was staged on December 10.
Proving that the show must go on, the event defied Melbourne’s squally December weather and the lashing wind along Harbour Esplanade by relocating into the spacious Shed 14 on Central Pier where the assembled crowd were treated to a night of fun and Christmas festivity.
The program started with the arrival of Santa, accompanied by one of his hard-working elves, who spread some Christmas cheer amongst the children present.
Guest comperes, Collingwood footballer Brodie Holland and Captain Brendan Nottle from the Salvation Army, anchored a program of music and carol singing accompanied by bands from the Salvation Army.
A guest appearance by Humphrey Bear delighted the younger folk and the witty and involving mime of Peter Gray was great entertainment for the adults.
Carols by the Cow is an annual event in Docklands. Thanks go to the Salvation Army for their substantial support for this program. Thanks also to Docklands’ own BoatShares who were on standby to deliver Santa by boat until the forced relocation of the event.
