Festive activities are popping up around the island and taking over the events agenda for December. One more Christmas village is opening its doors as Ayia Napa Marina transforms into a huge festive ground for a month of dazzling holiday activities.
From December 4 to 30, kids and adults will have the opportunity to witness the festive period’s magic through impressive decorations and activities for the whole family. Activities begin on Sunday with the lighting of the Christmas Tree and the Commercial Village at 5.30pm.
Arts and crafts, a Christmas Market, games, dancing, music, mascots, theatre, live links, snow show and, of course, gift-giving Santa Claus are just some of the festive surprises that will be featured.
Sunday’s agenda will also include a performance by the Philharmonic Orchestra of the Cyprus Police Force, a ballet show by Art de Ballet and a DJ music set. The Christmas market will be on almost every day of the month from 5pm to 8pm and 10am to 10pm on the weekends, except for the Christmas holidays.
“Aiming to bring smiles to kids and adults alike,” say the organisers, “Ayia Napa Marina offers the perfect setting for the entertainment of the whole family to create unforgettable memories. And since we have all spent many Christmases in the mountains or in the city, the year has come to live the ultimate Christmas experience by the sea.
“This year,” they conclude, “all roads – by land and sea – lead to the Christmas Village at Ayia Napa Marina. A unique experience for the most beautiful time of the year, at the ultimate destination for every season of the year.”
