Christmas in the Park


KOUGA – Deck! The halls – and trees, walls, doors, and roofs – with boughs of holly . . . Fa la la la it’s Christmas time.

Retrieve those boxes packed with vibrant decorations and begin adorning your space as Kouga is gearing up to shine this year. Be it with vibrant lights, shimmering baubles, playful elves, or dazzling tinsel.

In a bid to spread some holiday cheer, Kouga Municipality in conjunction with Jeffreys Bay Tourism, is rallying everyone – residents and local businesses – to join in spreading the holiday spirit by illuminating their homes or premises this festive season.

“The ambience created by Christmas trees, lights and decorations is unparalleled in fostering a festive atmosphere,” said Kouga Executive Mayor, Hattingh Bornman. “This will significantly contribute to ensuring that the holiday spirit radiates throughout our region, even amidst the numerous challenges we are encountering.”

With the consent of home and business owners, establishments will be incorporated into an exciting light route, with the park situated at the corner of Noorsekloof Road and Dogwood Street as the central focal point.

Christmas in the Park

The park will undergo a metamorphosis into a stunning display of lights and merriment – and authentic Christmas in the Park.

However, residents’ assistance is needed to illuminate the park.

If you have spare Christmas lights, decorations, or any red items in good condition, kindly consider dropping them off at BayMEd Pharmacy or reaching out to Sam at 074 795 3073.
