Santa Claus, Liz Jane will be at Port Royal’s Music Manager



This nativity scene has a view of the water, and you are invited.

Music from the Manger, a new three-day Christmas event in Port Royal featuring food trucks, vendors and music, kicks off Friday and continues Sunday against the beautiful backdrop of Battery Creek. It’s for a good cause.

Mayor Joe DeVito will start on weekend of festivities at 6 p.m. on Friday when the Vendors’ Christmas Village opens. Entrance to the festival to enjoy vendors and food trucks is free, but don’t forget to buy tickets for Liz Jane’s concert Saturday at the crèche. Jane produced a Christmas CD titled “A Thrill of Hope”.

The funds raised will benefit Beaufort Association for the Prevention of Child Abuse (CAPA).
