CHRISTMAS CAROLS, CHARITY FETE AND OTHER GOOD CAUSESWednesday 4th December 2013
You could start Christmas shopping, party booking and more this weekend, but if you're feeling like it's a little early for that, there are plenty of activities happening in and around the island to get you in a more festive mood. Here's a look at where to head.
They say it’s better to give than to receive but with Rotary Club of Antigua Sundown’s Signature Fete
you can do both. The all inclusive fete features Tian Winter and the Ionic Band with background entertainment from Selecta J and Chicki HiFi. The venue is Sand Piper Hotel on December 7th
from 9pm – 4 am and proceeds go towards their worthy autistic charity.
For a musical background of masterful steel band music, have Sunday Lunch
this and every Sunday for the month of December at Harmony Hall
. Enjoy Lacu Samuel and Vernie suitably exotic and energetic set of tunes in the lush gardens of Brown’s Bay that will prove to be the perfect soundtrack to your day.
You can help support and improve the lives of people who have limited time due to terminal illnesses at St. John`s Hospice while picking up something for your Christmas list at the December 8th Car Boot Sale/Flea Market
in Coolidge (along the road to LIAT Cargo). Come sell, come buy; and do a little good this Christmas.
If heading to Jolly Harbour wasn't part of your three day weekend, an all-you-can-eat Lobster feast
at Al Porto
will bring you up to speed. Featuring lobsters plucked right out of the sea, the shell delicacy will be accompanied by an array of sides at EC$ 90 per person. Regular menu also available.
If you're the type to head out hiking on a public holiday, here's your chance to indulge that impulse. The Dadli Hikers will be trekking a 20 mile course Coast to Coast from Hawksbill Beach to Half Moon Bay in a Fitness Challenge, in memory of President Brent Joseph
and in aid of Sunshine Home for Girl. Registration fee is EC$ 50.
On Tuesday at 6:30 pm, EAG’s monthly meeting
features Guest speaker, Tricia Lovell of the Fisheries Division who will speak about the importance of marine protected areas in Antigua and Barbuda.
