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. This December 8th event, supported by Project Watershed, 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 (4:00 pm), Sunday, December 8nd 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! 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 Restaurant Chef Ronald and Host Tricia St. Pierre offer a complementary wassail cup to all wandering minstrels arriving about 5:30 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.
The walk will be led this year by the Beach Street Singers, under the direction of Gloria Hereuf. Sheila Borman is organizing the volunteer team, supported by St. John’s Ambulance volunteers.
