Visitors to Limassol Marina experienced the wonderful magic of Christmas on 7 December 2019 with the lighting of the Marina’s spectacular 12-meter-high Christmas Tree. During this joyful event, the entire Marina burst into sparkling light against the dazzling backdrop of the sea, kicking off the festive season in the most spectacular manner.
The tree-lighting ceremony launched this year’s “Christmas on the Sea”, a joyful family event packed with a variety of fun and exciting activities and shows. An interactive arts and crafts workshop for children was organised by IPH House of Arts, accompanied by live music and performances by GEON and Katerina Kampanelli whose festive tunes got children and adults into the spirit of Christmas. The Limassol Theatre Arts School also joined the event with merry elves singing a medley of Christmas songs, followed by the ever-jolly Santa Claus who made an appearance to see in the festive season, delivering his love and gifts to the children. This year's official start of the Christmas season was marked by the Mayor of Limassol, Mr Nicos Nicolaides, who switched on Limassol Marina's spectacular festive lights. The entire event was broadcast live by Kanali 6.
The Funraising Charity Foundation also hosted the 10th Santa’s Workshop at Limassol Marina’s ΤΡΑΚΑΣΟΛ Cultural Centre
. Visitors were able to support this philanthropic initiative by participating in a variety of Christmas themed arts and crafts, theatre and musical workshops and indulging in an assortment of delicious Christmas sweets and desserts which were available for purchase.
