Part of Makarios Avenue closed for Christmas events

Part of Nicosia’s Makarios Avenue will be closed to traffic from December 6 to 28 so that it can be turned into ‘Christmas Avenue’.

Decorated wooden huts used as stalls and shops, a stage to host events and a luna park will line the street from December 11 onwards.

The avenue will be closed from Evagoras Street until Arnaldas Street from December 6 so that the facilities can be installed. Traffic will be directed to other streets to avoid congestion.

The wooden kiosks will serve food and beverages like mulled wine, sweets and traditional dishes until December 26 after which the road will remain closed for another two days to remove them.

The Christmas Ave is organised by the municipality and the Lefkosiazo group and events include activities for children, marching bands and choir music.

The yearly pop-up festival is also part of the celebrations. An attempt to revitalise the centre of the capital, it started on December 1 in the City Plaza shopping centre on Makarios Avenue this year.

For six weeks, artists, designers, entrepreneurs and others sell their creations in the once popular shopping centre.
