UMHLANGA SUMMER CARNIVAL (article first published : 2006-12-15)

Building on the success of last year’s December carnival, Umhlanga Tourism and Makulu Events & Marketing will present another action-packed holiday fun-filled week with the Umhlanga Summer Carnival which takes place from December 17 to 24.

This year’s carnival will include the Umhlanga Treasure-Trove market in the CBD and many of the restaurants in the area offer a leisurely breakfast to the gentle swing of a live jazz band.

Carols by Candlelight in the Lighthouse Mall will set the Christmas scene on December 22, starting at 18h30 with a children's programme, Goggles the Goose, followed by Carols with the Music Inc inhouse band. There is no entry fee - only an appeal to those attending to bring one new toy (unwrapped) per family. These toys will be distributed to underprivileged children in hospitals.

On December 23, Umhlanga’s CBD with its pavement cafes will come alive with the Carnival Street Party and Rio-style street parade. Activities will start at 19h00 and run until late and promise a party not to be missed.

According to Umhlanga Tourism Chairman, Peter Rose, every effort has been made to ensure that visitors and locals alike will enjoy this year-end holiday season. “With fun in the sun on the beach and a party mood in the Village at night, Umhlanga is set to ‘rock’ once again.”

Full programme details can be obtained from Umhlanga Tourism on 031 561 4257.
