Carol walk Friday

Carollers will meet at the Mansfield Drive parking lot near 27th Street and walk to Locals Restaurant.

A third annual carol walk happens this Friday in Courtenay from 4 to 6 p.m.

Carollers will meet at the Mansfield Drive parking lot near 27th Street and walk to Locals Restaurant, where there will be a wassail cup for carollers. Reserved caroller dinner tickets are available for 83 people.

Dress for the weather. Bring a light and some water.

It is not a fundraiser — just an opportunity for the community to walk along the airpark and enjoy the estuary at dusk while singing some carols.

Dan Clair’s Comox Harbour Cruise boat will be decorated with some carollers on aboard, so their land-bound counterparts hope to co-ordinate some songs between the on-land and on-water carollers this year.

Children and dogs are welcome. Walkers may join the carol walk at Mansfield Drive off Cliffe; at the airpark and riverway parking spaces or at the Old House-Locals Restaurant.

There will be a free wassail cup at Locals for any carollers. A special carollers’ dinner with musicians will happen if reservations are made.
