Carols by Candlelight has been an institution in Ballarat for over 60 years. Which is why the news of it's cancellation earlier this year was met with shock and disbelief. Thankfully, a group of passionate locals got together to ensure one of Ballarat's favourite nights of the year would continue.
Not only would it continue, but this year it would feature a family-friendly festival to be held in the late afternoon, with roving entertainment, a kids carnival and local food vendors.
Jules and Kris spoke to this year's Carols by Candlelight host Darryl Somers to get the lowdown on the event.
