CAROLS in the park and the opening of Alkimos’s newest restaurant created a busy atmosphere at Waterfront Park last weekend.
The Shore Things held its Christmas event on December 15, with the Libby Hammer Quintet and the Australian Girls’ Choir leading the carol singing.
Santa also visited to dish out treats and hear from children about what was on their Christmas wish lists.
The event coincided with the opening of the Oceans 27 restaurant, which overlooks the Alkimos shipwreck.
General manager Vinnie Borsoti, said they were blown away with the support from the community.
“We had close to 700 people through the doors over our opening weekend and the positive feedback has been flowing in – everyone seems really excited,” he said.
The restaurant is open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner and the menu includes Australian modern cuisine as well as Eastern European food and Asian flavours.
It is one of several venues opening in the area, with Jindalee’s Eden Beach foreshore cafe, the Alkimos Beach Tavern and The Amberton Cafe and Bar due to open next year.
