To relieve the pressure on him, Father Christmas has decided to hand out a few presents in advance during a picnic at the beautiful Afrikaans Language Monument on Saturday, 19 December 2020 - an evening also in aid of a good cause.
The enjoyable programme will kick off at 17:00 with the puppet show ‘Hentie and the Christmas Crisis’ by Henties after which Mendl Lategan will entertain the children with balloon sculpturing. Around 19:00 Father Christmas will arrive and hand out presents before the sun goes down, after which the parents and children can continue enjoying a relaxed picnic until 22:00.
These picnics on Paarl Mountain are very popular with locals and visitors alike, who especially enjoy the sunset and beautiful night views of the valleys, mountains and peninsula. Guests are encouraged to explore the area and there are outdoor games and playgrounds for the children. The picnic series is also held in aid of ‘Let us Read!’, the monument's literacy project for children, and guests are encouraged to donate a new or second-hand children's book in support of it.
