The Estuary Carol Walk is always a popular seasonal event.

Annual Estuary Carol Walk takes place Sunday at dusk

Walk takes approximately 90 minutes

  • Nov. 30, 2016 8:00 a.m.

The sixth annual Comox Valley Estuary Carol walk begins at dusk (4 p.m.), Sunday, Dec. 4 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. Dress accordingly and bring a flashlight or headlamp if possible. Park vehicles at Mansfield Drive, the Airpark or near the Old House.

Locals chef Ronald and host Trish 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 (250-338-6493) and may order off the regular menu or select the seasonal special.

Carol leader Joanna Finch has prepared an online carol booklet that can be downloaded from the Project Watershed web page (www.projectwatershed.ca). Any attending choral groups, choirs and musicians are encouraged to add interesting harmonics.

The old-fashion purpose of this event is to enjoy making joyful sounds in our special outdoor environment, while continuing the tradition of holiday sing-alongs. For more information, contact the Project Watershed office (250-703-2871).

The Estuary Carol Walk is a unique opportunity to enjoy our beloved Airpark  and riverway during winter season. Carollers share universal spiritual and secular musical traditions with birds, seals, salmon and other residents of our community.

“It’s not necessary to be a choir singer – like the other Estuary inhabitants, we’ll just raise our voices,” says  Finch.
