The smoke haze and the crispy, crunchy grass couldn't keep Liverpool Plains residents away from Christmas Carols by Candlelight.
The festive event at the Quirindi Rural Heritage Village on Sunday night drew folks from Werris Creek, Quipolly, Murrurundi, Willow Tree to name a few.
Weeks of practice paid off for Harvest Church, Werris Creek Uniting Church and Quirindi Public School as they took to the stage to perform.
Miniature train rides, glow sticks and lollies from Santa kept the kids busy, and Quirindi Uniting Church's Mark Prowse shared a message on changing your mindset or thinking towards God and each other.
The annual event was hosted by the Quirindi Ministers Fraternal.
