Snow way! A fes­tive flurry falls on Bray as the town is lit up

Bray People - - NEWS -

THE streets of Bray were packed to ca­pac­ity on Satur­day evening as the town held it’s of­fi­cial cer­e­mony to turn on the Christ­mas lights and get the fes­tive sea­son un­der way.

The sea­son started with a bang at the Civic Plaza on the Main Street as there was a won­der­ful fire­works dis­play to en­joy as ‘oohs’ and ‘ahhs’ rang out in the air.

How­ever, for the boys and girls of Bray, there was only one thing, or more cor­rectly, one per­son they wanted to see – a spe­cial guest that trav­elled all the way from the North Pole to be with them, Santa Claus.

Santa was in great form as he waved to the boys and girls, wish­ing them a happy Christ­mas and even dou­ble check­ing what they had on their Christ­mas list be­fore he re­turns on the big night, Christ­mas Eve.

The fes­tive fun was added to with won­der­ful per­for­mances from Bray Mu­si­cal So­ci­ety and St Cro­nan’s Boys Choir who kept the crowd en­ter­tained with some of their favourite Christ­mas car­ols.

Cathaoir­leach of Bray Mu­nic­i­pal Dis­trict Cllr John Brady thanked ev­ery­one for mak­ing the ef­fort and com­ing out, while wear­ing a Christ­mas jumper that Ryan Tubridy would have been proud of on The Late Late Toy Show.

There was a won­der­ful at­mos­phere around the town as the Christ­mas sea­son of­fi­cially got un­der­way and hope­fully it will con­tinue in the com­ing weeks as we get closer to Santa’s ar­rival.
