The Christmas Carol Walk along the COurtenay Estuary always draws a good crowd. Photo supplied.

Annual Estuary Carol Walk set for Dec. 8

The Estuary Carol Walk is a unique opportunity to enjoy our beloved Airpark and Riverway during the winter season.

Carollers share universal spiritual and secular musical traditions with birds, seals, salmon and other residents of our community.

This Project Watershed-sponsored event on Dec. 8 is not a fundraiser; rather it is an invitation to include nature as part of your festive activities.

The ninth annual Comox Valley Estuary Carol walk begins at dusk (4 p.m.), Sunday, Dec. 8 at Mansfield Drive parking lot (behind Bayside Cafe at 26th off Cliffe Avenue). Carollers may also join at the Airpark marina parking lot or on the covered patio at Locals Restaurant, near the Old House.

Children and dogs welcome!

Remindeer: we live in a Canadian rainforest so dress for the weather. Carry a water bottle.

Bring a flashlight or headlamp if possible. Park vehicles at Mansfield Drive, the Airpark or near the Old House.

Locals chef Ronald and host Tricia St. Pierre offer a complimentary wassail cup to all wandering minstrels arriving about 5:30 p.m.

Those staying for dinner should make a reservation prior to the event (250-338-6493).

There is an online carol booklet that may be downloaded from the Project Watershed web page (www.projectwatershed.ca).

The walk will be led this year by the Beach Street Singers, under the direction of Gloria Hereuf. Sheila Borman organizes the volunteer team, supported by St. John’s Ambulance volunteers.
