The festivities continue on Boxing Day- Monday December 26th- from 11am to 6pm continuing with the same fete and frolic and will culminate in a scintillating live concert headlined by Tifa and features performances from X-hale, Flava Expressions, etc. According to Henry “the residents are excited about what Eden Acres has to offer and the support has been overwhelming.”
