SANTA has packed his sleigh with musical talent for this year's Logan City Mayor's Christmas Carols with Aussie singer Jessica Mauboy confirmed as the headline act.

Mayor Pam Parker said this year's event would be bigger and better thanks to Ms Mauboy's attendance.

"Jessica is certainly one of Australia's most popular artists at the moment and it is fantastic to have someone of her calibre on board for this year's carols," Cr Parker said.

"Having recently taken out the award for Female Artist of the Year at the Deadly's (the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Music, Sport, Entertainment and Community Awards), Jessica is well versed when it comes to Christmas carols having even released her own Christmas album in 2009.

"Carols are always such a popular event on the calendar and it's extremely exciting to have Jessica on board for this year's carols to sing everyone's favourites."

Guests can expect to sing along to some of the most well known Christmas carols including Silent Night, White Christmas, Deck the Halls and plenty more.

Cr Parker confirmed this year's event would once again be held at the Logan Metro Indoor Sports Centre on Saturday, December 15.

"Due to the south-east's notorious wet summer weather we chose to use Logan Metro again as it allows a multi-functional set up and will ensure a magical night of festivities rain, hail or shine," she said.

Cr Parker also said the annual carols were one of the city's most exciting events and this year would be no exception, with a fireworks spectacular also planned for the night.

The 2012 Logan City Mayor's Christmas Carols will be held at the Logan Metro Indoor Sports Centre, which is located on Browns Plains Rd on Saturday, December 15.

Gates open at 3pm with the event concluding at 8.30pm.

To help avoid traffic congestion, there will be a Park n' Ride from the Berrinba Wetlands SW1, with buses transporting guests up to the Logan Metro Centre and back afterwards.
