The Estuary Carol Walk is Back – Dec 5th, 2021
Estaury Carol Walk
Mansfield Drive Parking Lot
You can download and print the Carol Booklet on this page or view it on your phone so that you can sing along with the group.
The 10th annual Comox Valley Estuary Carol walk begins at 3:00 pm on Sunday, December 5th at Mansfield Drive parking lot (behind Bayside Cafe at 26th off Cliffe Ave). Carollers may also join at the Airpark Marina parking lot or on the covered patio at Locals Restaurant, near the Old House Hotel and Spa. Children and dogs welcome!
This year the walk will be led by a group of ukulele players called “Time for Uke”, under the direction of Beth Hopkins.
We live in a Canadian rain forest, please dress for the weather. We also suggest you bring a water bottle and a flashlight or headlamp. As singing involves much heavy breathing, we will be asking that everyone 5 years and older wear a mask. While we will do our best to spread everyone out, please try to stick to your group and stay 10 feet from others not in your bubble. Participants can park vehicles at Mansfield Drive, the Airpark or near the Old House Hotel and Spa.
Locals Restaurant Chef Ronald and Host Tricia St. Pierre offer a complementary wassail cup to all wandering minstrels arriving about 4:30 pm. Those staying for dinner should make a reservation prior to the event (250 338-6493) and may order off the regular menu or select the seasonal special.
If the event is canceled due to weather we will post information on this page as well as our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter feeds. To check if the event is still on you can call 250-792-2873.
