Christmas is coming to Camana Bay

| 26/11/2008

(CNS): The Cayman National Choir & Orchestra and Santa will be adding to the festivities next week when Camana Bay hosts its annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony on Thursday 4 December from 6-8pm. The Paseo is to be transformed into a sparkling wonderland with a giant Christmas tree and thousands of fairy lights illuminating the town.


The Cayman National Choir & Orchestra will add to the enchantment with a festive performance of carols and Christmas music, accompanied by children’s choirs from Cayman International School and Cayman Prep. Song sheets will be provided for the audience to sing along to old time favourites such as Away in the Manger and Hark the Herald.

After the tree and lights are switched on, Santa will make a much-anticipated appearance bringing candy canes for well-behaved kids, who will have the opportunity to have their photos taken with Santa. There is also a Christmas market, with a variety of stalls along Market Street selling an array of local produce and crafts, including several products by Junior Achievement companies.

Evening opening hours at all of Camana Bay’s stores makes it an ideal opportunity to start Christmas shopping. Bedside Manor is a treasure trove of gift ideas, NKY has a number of elegant ideas for fashionable friends and family, while booklovers will appreciate all that is in store this Christmas at Books & Books. To really spoil the special person in your life, a trip to The Mansion, the soon-to-open flagship store from Island Companies with its alluring choice of luxury watches and stylish jewellery, is a must this holiday season.

With cookies and juice also on offer throughout the evening, the Christmas tree lighting ceremony at Camana Bay is the perfect time and place to get into the spirit of Christmas.

Meanwhile this weekend the new town will be hosting the first annual Children’s Book Festival starting with storytelling and activities on Saturday 29t h November at Books & Books followed by the Cystic Fibrosis Trust Bedtime Story Fun Day at Dart Family Park in South Sound on Sunday 30t h November.
