The festive season in Kleinmond traditionally begins in the second week of December when the ‘Lights on Main’ are switched on.    

This annual event kicked off on Monday, 11 December, in the early evening as usual - with food stalls and live entertainment from the Handevat Marimba Band who delivered a wonderful medley of Christmas carols, campfire songs and folk tunes.

In her address, Cllr Elnora Gillion called on the public to let the spirit of Christmas be their guide this holiday season.  “As we celebrate the birth of our Lord, I pray that the light of kindness and hope be reborn in you. Peace and goodwill to you and your loved ones this Christmas season”. 

Residents and visitors were further urged to be thankful, never forget the past and trust the future.

“We should never become too busy to live that we eventually forget that we need to make a life,” she added.

The festivities concluded with Councillor Fanie Krige expressing his gratitude to the organisers, shopkeepers and residents for their co-operation and support.

“Happy Holidays! Best wishes for you and your family this Christmas,” he said.
