Carolling in Caddy Bay set for Sunday

The festivities begin at 6:30 p.m. in the village and run until 8:30 p.m. Parking is available at Gyro Park and along Sinclair Road.

Christmas comes to Cadboro Bay this Sunday (Dec. 11).

Carolling in the Village, an annual tradition started 20 years ago by Peoples Drug Mart owner Naz Rayani continues with a celebration of food, music and lights to officially kick off the holiday season.

Hosted by the Cadboro Bay Business Improvement Association with help from the Cadboro Bay Residents Association, this year’s event includes all the old favourites: a village tree light up, turkey and gift baskets raffles as well as hotdogs, hot chocolate and roasted chestnuts. New on the menu this year are pet treats courtesy of the village veterinarian.

Louise Rose will lead the Open Door Choir, comprised of family members and friends of Our Place Society, in a singalong with students from the Canadian College of the Performing Arts. All proceeds from the raffles will be split between the two organizations. Last year, the event generated $1,500.

“We had a great night last year,” said Business Improvement Association president Brian Dunn. “I just hope people get down there.”

“It’s just a very joyous event to celebrate the holiday season and the community,” said Cadboro Bay Residents’ Association president Elizabeth Borek.

The festivities begin at 6:30 p.m. in the village and run until 8:30 p.m. Parking is available at Gyro Park and along Sinclair Road.

“It’s also just a great way to meet your neighbours,” Borek added.
