Christmas in Winter

It’s Winter in the Western Cape and Tulbagh is celebrating Christmas early by welcoming one and all to visit their town for a host of wonderful winter warmers this Saturday and Sunday (27-28 June 2009).

Father Christmas will be there and you may even be able to take a trip with him down Church Street to hand out edible delights to the young children. The town will be decorated with Christmas lights and trees with all the trimmings while local restaurants will be serving up traditional Christmas dinners.

Spend the day browsing through some of the arts, crafts and photographic exhibitions, art galleries or perhaps one of the charming shops will take your fancy. There will be tastings for everyone’s palate from delicious cheeses and olives to decadent Belgium chocolate or if you’re a keen chilli eater then the chilli eating competition is for you. A number of competitions will be taking place over the weekend so make sure you don’t miss out.

There is something for everyone this weekend and the little kids are will be well taken care of with face painting, jumping castles, pony rides and much more on offer.

And while you’re in the Tulbagh valley you can enjoy a wine tasting or cellar tour at some of South Africa’s best known wine estates on the Tulbagh Wine Route including Drostdyhof, Theuniskraal and House of Krone. And if you’re looking for a bit of entertainment on Saturday night the “Rock with Santa Party” will see you dancing the night away in a festive celebration of Christmas in Winter.

    That sounds like a great little town. The town near me at home also gets together and serves up christmas dinners across the whole neighbourhood. It is a great feeling around that time of the year. It may be cold, but a few warm christmas dinners in your stomach and everyone has a smile on their faces.
