This year, the City of Jounieh hosted a one-of-a-kind village, which perfectly reflected the essence and real meaning of Christmas. The village opened its doors within the green trees and flowery trails of the City’s public garden. A thousand and one lights and colors dazzled children and parents alike, creating a warm and festive atmosphere.
Accompanied by the enchanting sound of bells, the opening ceremony took place on December 13 in the presence of Mr. Antoine Frem, President of Jounieh Municipal Council, and a whole host of social, spiritual and media figures.
The echoing Christmas carols acted as an irresistible magnet for residents and a large number of visitors who flocked from all areas to take part in the festivities and enjoy the spirit of the joyful season.
The program, starts at 5:00 p.m. till midnight and lasts until December 27. It includes entertainment shows, parades, marionette plays (on 19, 20, 25, and 26 December at 6:30 p.m.); handicrafts workshops, face painting sessions, and a Christmas Carol performed live on December 23 at 7:30 p.m. Visitors will also be able to enjoy the Christmas market and a large surface area reserved for restaurants. It is worth noting that all events are free of charge and open to the public.
Once again, Jounieh’s Municipality proves the importance of its collaboration with Phellipolis -the NGO which spared no effort to organize and uplift the event in terms of management, organization, and security.
