There was plenty of festive cheer at the community carols and picnic in Tokai on Saturday night. Families sang along to Christmas carols led by the Muizenberg Junior School Choir, at the Tokai Riding Arena. The event was organised by Parkscape and several other community groups. Comedian Alan Committie was the MC for the evening and musician Kevin du Preez performed. Santa handed out treats to the children and three Christmas hampers were won on the night. People took pet food which was donated to animal rescue groups Furget Me Knot and Barefoot Rescue.
