The Boorowa Lions Club barbecue will be in operation from 6pm.

There will also be a prize for the best Christmas Hat.

Santa will drop in to see all the children and the young at heart with a little gift for all.

Bring your chair or picnic blanket and enjoy Boorowa Carols by Candlelight.

The night is sponsored by Hilltops Council and the Boorowa Community Bank.

The evening will be the only community Christmas celebration in Boorowa this year with the cancellation of the Party on Pudman. 

It is the first time since 2013 that the annual late night shopping event will not be held. 

One of the original organisers, Maria Biglands, said none of the members of the small group behind Party on Pudman were able to take it on this year due to personal commitments and no longer working in Boorowa. 

“The three of us put a lot of effort into it,” she said. 

She said she was looking into “something to replace it with next year”.
