Last year Chantelle and I took the girls to our very first Oom Piet’s Christmas Party, which is in annual fundraising project brought to life by the Durbanville Rotary Club. It was an absolute treat and certainly one of the best ways to kick off the festive season if you have young ones like we do!
The Rotary Club itself has been serving the local under-privileged communities for more than four decades, and all funds raised from these Christmas parties are used for community service projects in and around Durbanville.
If you are not familiar with Oom’s Piets Christmas parties, essentially a section of the Durbanville Race Course gets transformed into a magical castle where a host of storybook characters entertain children between the ages of 3 to 8 with pantomime, carol singing and of course, a visit from the all important Father Christmas himself!
It’s an absolute feel good evening event which is guaranteed to leave you and your youngs ones with a big grin on the face.
Applications are now open, so it is probably a good idea to book your place with an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, as this popular event sells out pretty fast!
