Locals poured onto Wolseley Oval on Friday night for Carols in the Park.
The annual event featured performances from Carinya Christian School, St Xavier's Primary School, Gunnedah Conservatorium, St Mary's and Gunnedah High School.
Santa rode into the event on a Gunnedah Rural Fire Service truck and handed lollies to the kids.
A massive display of fireworks finished off the night of fun.
The Christmas event is run by the Gunnedah Ministers Fraternal.
