One of the pre-Christmas highlights in Port Elizabeth is the Lovemore Heights Chrismas House's annual event where they turn on the lights, After skipping last year for personal reasons, the Grootendorst family and all their helpers are coming out guns (or in this case Chrismas lights) blazing this year with a full program this coming Saturday evening. The Lovemore Heights Chrismas House is located at the top of Melsetter Road and if you want to get a good spot for the evening you better make sure you come early as it looks like there's going to be a lot of people. The road is going to be closed so a good spot to park will be on the Charlo side of the water reservoir, a short walk down the hill.
Here is the programme for the evening of 2 December 2017:
18H00-19H00: The LoveMore Mascots will be out on patrol. Come take some photos with your favorite characters.
18H30 -19H15: Young singers will entertain us with Christmas songs.
19H00: Parade from upper St Clair’s Way down Edmonds Road to 24 Melsetter Road. The parade includes the Algoa Calendonian Pipe Band, Santa and Mrs Claus along with the Elves and dancing girls with ribbons. Everyone is welcome to walk down with them.
19H30: The programme starts at 24 Melsetter Road Lovemore Heights
