I’m sorry…..where did 2016 go again? Believe it or not, the end of another calendar year is nigh and that means Summer holidays and Santa are right around the corner. Pretty soon many of us will be taking off to spend the silly season with family across the globe but before we do it’s time to celebrate the end of term. In keeping with tradition The Junior Sports Academy and Finns Recreation Club will hold their 9th Annual Christmas Bazaar and end of term party on the last day of the CCS semester, Friday December 16th.
It’s a fantastic afternoon chock full of festive spirit and some seriously irresistible Christmas shopping bargains. As the biggest market of the year it attracts a wealth of local vendors selling everything from shoes, clothing, artwork, food, homewares, jewellery, couches for canines and cats (I kid you not…) and a host of other gift worthy goodies. Trust me, many a Christmas stocking has been stuffed from the stalls of the Finns Recreation Club Christmas Bazaar and I challenge anyone to walk away without buying at least one thing!
Bazaar bargain shopping begins at midday with a gymnastics presentation from the students of the Junior Sports Academy a little later in the afternoon. These end of term parties are always a terrific opportunity to discover how well JSA participants have progressed throughout the term and a chance for the kids to showcase all of the new skills they have developed during previous weeks.
As well as a few friendly fun and games across the avo, every member of the JSA and their families are welcome to enjoy the slides at Splash Waterpark from 12 midday until 6pm, free of charge!
Now it wouldn’t be a party without some tasty snacks and Christmas cheer so Bistro C will provide F&B specials throughout the afternoon and guests are encouraged to stay on for dinner once the market is over. Remember everyone is welcome and Finns Recreation Club Gold and Platinum card holders are still entitled to 50% discount on food and beverage after 5pm! Once the sun goes down and the stalls are stacked away, Finns Recreation Club will bring out the big screen and bean bags to get ready for their starlight Christmas movie presentation. A S’more (or four) for dessert and you’ll really think it’s Christmas!
Anyone interested in participating in the Finns Recreation Club Christmas Bazaar as a vendor is welcome to email firstname.lastname@example.org for details and registration. Due to the continued success of this particular market, (I mean, where else do you get to do your Christmas shopping and enjoy a wine and a water slide in the one place!!) securing a stall is on a first come, first served basis and tables are limited so get in quick! Registrations are open now until 6pm on December 10th.
If you’re like me and love Christmas and the silly season build up, mark this one in your diaries. Friday December 16th @ Finns Recreation Club – I’ll be there with my santa hat and shopping bags!
