Carols in Settlers Park

On Saturday night the second annual Carols by Candlelight in Settlers Park took place.  The event was organised by the Wildlife and Environment Society of SA (WESSA) and Nelson Mandela Bay Tourism and forms part of the Baakens Valley Recovery Program.  Although the wind was blowing all day long, the spot where the carols took place was sheltered and you barely felt a breeze.  The program was lead by the Salvation Army Brass Band and the vocal talents of Niqui Cloete-Barrass and MC of the night, Anna Pouw of BayFM.  People came with blankets and camp chairs, picnic baskets and wine and kids ran wild. But not wild in a bad sense.  After dark everybody lit their candles, although they had to shelter the flames from the slight breeze  This is really an event that can grow to be one of the highlights on the city’s event calender.
