‘Fol­low the Star’ to kick off the sea­son

The Rep - - ROUND & ABOUT - CHUX FOURIE

A won­der­ful way to start the Christ­mas sea­son, not only for the chil­dren but for the adults too, is for the fam­ily to have a meal to­gether and then drive around and view the beau­ti­ful Christ­mas lights dec­o­rat­ing the out­side of many homes over the fes­tive sea­son.

The Anns of the Queen­stown Ro­tary Club have, for a num­ber of years, hosted Fol­low the Star and there are many chil­dren who just can’t wait for this very fes­tive event to kick off.

Those in at­ten­dance gather at the Ro­tary Club in Frost Street from about 6pm where they can have some­thing to eat and drink while they wait for the sun to set . . .and, who knows, maybe a man in a red suit may come along to visit.

Once it gets dark they are given a list of clues which, when fol­lowed, will take them round to the var­i­ous homes of peo­ple who have agreed to put their homes on view, which has ev­ery­one mar­vel­ling at the won­der­ful dis­plays of San­tas, sleighs, rein­deer, bells, an­gels, stars, Christ­mas trees and all things Christ­massy.

The chil­dren not only en­joy the twin­kling lights, but also love un­rav­el­ling the clues and this makes for a won­der­ful evening’s fes­tive en­ter­tain­ment for the whole fam­ily – at only the cost of the food.

So don’t miss out – Fol­low the Star from 6pm this evening and give your fam­ily a real treat.
