Kids treated at Digicel’s Winter Wonderland

On two consecutive Sundays, December 4 and 11, the First Caribbean International Bank (FCIB) car park in Kingstown came alive, having been transformed into the ideal kids’ Christmas playground, as telecommunications company-Digicel held its Winter Wonderland-Santa’s Playground activity.

The event, which also served as a family movie night, was geared primarily at providing children between ages six and 16 a safe environment to play, be creative, eat and view movies, while their parents do their Christmas shopping and run errands around Kingstown.{{more}}

The gate to the FCIB car park was opened from 4 in the afternoon until 9 p.m. Inside the Winter Wonderland, the children had the opportunity to decorate and personalize cupcakes, have their face painted, participate in arts and craft activities, where they built their own necklaces, earrings and other jewelry. The children inside Santa’s Workshop also had the opportunity to meet and take photos with Santa, enter the bouncing castle and view movies – Elf and Frozen. The kids were also treated to popcorn and cotton candy as they entered the outdoor theatre.

Parents and guardians who entered the car park expressed much thanks to Digicel, describing the activity as one that should be a permanent display in the city for kids and families. Moreover, the parents stated that the activity provided their children with the opportunity to grow, as they met and interacted with strangers and developed new skills while decorating cupcakes and making jewelry.

Digicel’s country manager John Davies said the Winter Wonderland experience is another demonstration of Digicel’s commitment to giving back to all Vincentians, adding that the activity is in keeping with telecoms company’s 2016 Christmas campaign theme “GetGifted.” Davies said every child that enters the Winter Wonderland is gifted, whether it is with much to eat or being allowed to take home a piece of jewelry they would have created. Additionally, Davies explained that the Winter Wonderland initiative provided all Digicel customers another opportunity to capitalize on the GetGifted Christmas promotion, where they can perform a number of activities for a chance to scratch and win over $150,000 in cash and prizes.
