Gorey Christmas Lights – switch on!
25 November, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Fun and festivities galore at the switching on of Gorey’s Christmas lights.
Plans are well and truly in place for a fun-filled, magical, family evening in Gorey for this year’s Big Switch On, which will take place on Saturday, 25thNovember, with Santa arriving to turn on the lights at 7.30pm. He will travel up Main Street in his sleigh and will then collect all the children’s letters on stage. Don’t miss this great opportunity and be sure to post your letter in the “Special Santa Post Box” located on Main Street outside the Tourist Office.
South East Radio’s Dave Redmond will act as MC, and entertainment will begin from 6.45pm while the crowds excitedly await the arrival of Santa Claus.
If you have a special question you would like to ask him, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org and you might be one of the lucky children who will get a direct reply from Santa when he is interviewed on the night.
Entertainment will continue each weekend after The Big Switch On right up to Christmas.
Two years ago Wexford County Council invested huge sums in rewiring the town, purchasing and installing new lights, providing a sound system and all this work was carried out with the support of the local businesses. An estimated 8000 people turned out for last year’s Big Switch On when Santa arrived in style flanked by The Goldwing riders.
Let’s make this an even bigger and better event, don’t miss out on what we promise will be a magical evening for all involved.
