The main settlement of Green Turtle Cay is decked out in style every Christmas thanks to the work of the Festival of Lights Committee who each year hold events to raise money to dress New Plymouth in lights and decorations for the season.
The committee, headed by Frances McIntosh, held a Christmas Golf Cart Parade that saw eight carts decorated with lights and Christmas themes, including a ginger bread house and one based on Disney’s Frozen.
This was followed by a visit from Santa Claus who handed out presents to delighted children, and Christmas carols were sung afterwards.
They had a variety of meals and desserts for sale that night including soups and chowders, cakes and cookies and more, all donated to help raise funds for the lights.
The town of New Plymouth and the park were decorated beautifully due to the work of the committee and community to raise funds to decorate throughout Green Turtle Cay with lights and decorations for the Christmas holidays.
