Festival background

The Festival began 8 years ago when adjoining Bokarina streets lit up their homes for Christmas.


Our church is strategic on corner where traffic control barricades were placed & could offer the reason behind the Christmas season.  We began with a basic Christmas decorations and nativity set and free refreshments attracting 2000 visitors. Each succeeding year grew to up to 14,000 visitors yearly over the last 4 years.


People are still enjoying celebrating the true meaning of Christmas in this visual and creative way.
