Christmas carols echoed out from Mackie Park as families waved their LED candles at the annual Carols in the Park.

The hot weather did not stop them as they found a picnic spot to settle in with a sausage sizzle then sent the kids off to play or get their face painted.

Narrogin Baptist Church pastor Peter Aitchison was the MC for the night, with the fun starting at 7pm on Sunday.
