Visitors to the park enjoyed an afternoon filled with entertainment and fun activities for persons of all ages. Children were treated to a special toy giveaway from Santa.

At dusk, the venue was transformed into a magical Christmas wonderland, scattered with many holiday lights and figurines. Patrons were invited to view and participate in a special holiday and carol singing concert, by candlelight, which featured a host of local artistes including Jenny J, Jay and Lisa McDonald, Randal Robinson, Inspector and many more.

Additionally this year, a bonfire was built for roasting of S’mores and a photo booth was placed on site for persons to capture the fun moments.

“This year’s event was the largest to date and a huge success. Community building is very important to the Rotary Club of Grenada. Through the hosting of Carols by Candlelight, we provide a unique opportunity for families to spend time together and remember that the holiday season is a period for thanksgiving, sharing and caring. We are pleased that the event was so well received by the wider community,” commented Terrence Smith, President of the Rotary Club of Grenada.

In addition to Carols by Candlelight, the Rotary Club of Grenada also hosts other fundraising events throughout the year such as the Annual Carnival Day Fete. All proceeds from Rotary events benefit its community projects, including the maintenance and development of the Quarantine Point Recreational Park, the only remaining public park in the south of the island; upkeep of the School for Special Education, water sanitation and hygiene projects, and other environmental projects across our tri-island state.
