THE Voice contestant Glenn Cunningham will launch the festive season in style at the GLNG Mayor's Carols by Candlelight celebrations on December 7.

Gladstone Region soloists and school choirs will accompany Cunningham in entertaining the crowd from 6.30pm to 8.30pm at the Gladstone Marina Parklands.

Cunningham performed backing vocals for Delta Goodrem, Ricky Lee, John Farnham and Jimmy Barnes, among others, before gaining fame on the Australian version of The Voice.

He will perform "This Christmas", "Winter Wonderland", "The Christmas Song" and his single "Heaven".

Although, he won't be the only celebrity on the night with Santa making an appearance.

Gladstone Mayor Gail Sellers said Carols by Candlelight had proved to be a popular event in the past and was confident that Gladstone Region residents would again get behind the concert.

"Carols by Candlelight is a great way for families and friends to share the Christmas spirit in a family-friendly environment that is enjoyed by young and old," Cr Sellers said.

"Entry is free for all residents and visitors to the region and everyone is encouraged to bring chairs, picnic rugs and their singing voices along for a great night of entertainment.

"It's great that GLNG and Zinc radio station have supported this event and the Gladstone Festivals and Events team have again done an excellent job putting it together."

Zinc's Rob Kidd will compere the evening featuring the lighting of the Christmas tree by Cr Sellers, Curtis the Turtle, Santa and his elves, a Christmas stocking raffle, a ham wheel, a boy's and girl's lucky bike giveaway and a fireworks display.

Event parking costs $2 with food and drinks available on the night and the public advised that dogs, BYO tables and alcohol are not permitted.
