Carolling in the Village a success

Christmas couldn’t have gone any better for Cadboro Bay this year.

Christmas couldn’t have gone any better for Cadboro Bay this year.

Carolling in the Village went off without a hitch under dry skies and raised $1,500 for Louise Rose and the Open Door Choir and the Canadian College of the Performing Arts on Dec. 11. Part of the success of the long-running event is the amount of young families moving to the neighbourhood, which at one time was predominantly older adults, said Cadboro Bay Business Improvement Association president Brian Dunn.

“Cadboro Bay is gradually changing,” Dunn said. “I think we’ll have to get a Santa Claus for the kids next year.”

Carolling in the Village was hosted by the Cadboro Bay Business Improvement Association and the Cadboro Bay Residents Association. The evening included performances by the Open Door Choir and students of the Canadian College of the Performing Arts, as well as gift basket raffles to support the two non-profit groups.
