This year, in addition to the trail which features magical Christmas characters, a talking tree and the Remembrance Tree of Light, there is live music from Durban’s best local talent between 7.30pm to 8.30pm each night according to event organiser, Alene Naidoo.
“A food garden with some of the city’s best local vendors offer a range of food options. No food or drinks will be permitted into the gardens.”
This year’s charities include CROW, Feeding the Furballs, Cupcakes of Hope and TAFTA.
“Santa’s grotto presented by CROW will have a very unusual, not-to-be-missed South African-style sleigh,” Naidoo said.
