The mystery of Christmas

By Maria Gregoriou

Limassol really is becoming the Vegas of Cyprus with its new Marina giving us all kinds of events right, left and centre, and now just under a month of events all in the name of the sprit of Christmas Mystery at the GSO parking place.

The Christmas event that may put all other major events in our other major cities to shame, officially started on Monday but it is really on this coming Friday when things will really kick off and just keep on going until January 11.

Apart from offering us a Christmas market with some festive magical cheer, there will be lots of concerts and activities for kids. Just to mention a few happenings coming your way, Friday starts at 3.30pm with a karaoke music contest followed by face painting, so if you love to sing, sing, sing, now is your chance. Following on from that at 8pm is the first concert to start a whole bunch of live events with Anna Vissi.

On Saturday the day starts at 2pm with Santa’s fairy tales and then at 3.30pm get the kids to be creative at the Santa workshop where they can make some Christmas decorations. As a prize for all their hard work, they can get their faces painted. Stick around for a bit of theatre performance by Teatro Bambola at 5pm and then some live music from the Russian band NA-Na at 8pm.

Sunday is pretty much the same, just with balloons thrown in and a live performance from the Greek hip-hop band Vegas at 8pm.

If you are not situation in Limassol make a plan to get there sooner or later because this event will be on for longer than a Christmas advent calendar. But just to make sure you don’t miss a thing take a look of what you can get up to at
