Storms River Village has been alive with festivities this Christmas Season. With two wonderful events preceding Christmas Day, villagers and visitors alike have been immersed in the kind of cheerful spirit that can only be described as contagious.

Starting off our Christmas Season, on December 16th, was a bustling Christmas Market at the entrance to the Village, outside Taste Bistro. Local Stallholders arrived with all manner of expertly handmade crafts, delicious treats and fresh produce. What a lively event it was! Visitors to the Village were spoiled with an experience only a Village like Storms River can offer. 

The large jumping castle was a huge hit amongst the children and occupied many of them for hours. Local music program, Music Sprouts, offered a music tent, filled with instruments for all who wanted to play and learn. Overall, it was a day filled with activity, fun, laughter and cheer. Make sure you don’t miss out on next year’s Christmas Market!

On Friday, December 22nd, the Village hosted a lovely Carols by Candlelight event. The first event of its kind in many years, this promises to become another Storms River tradition. One of the event organizers, Jimmy Wayland, says, “The combination of good weather, upbeat carols, great singing, kids playing and toasting marshmallows on the fire, local goodies on display and Villagers mingling had many a tourist drift down to observe what makes our Village so special. I spoke to four of the couples and they were noticeably impressed. Another great example of community-spiritedness, from set-up to attendance.”

Storms River Village has undoubtedly celebrated its most Festive Christmas Season yet! One of the many aspects that makes this village one of a kind is the sense of “gees” (Afrikaans word for “spirit”). If you weren’t able to visit Storms River this year, make sure you mark your holiday on next year’s calendar now! You can book your stay here, and check out all the activities the Village has to offer!
