Countdown is on for the big Christmas switch on
Santa Claus is coming to town on Saturday, November 25 next, and young Santa fans are urged to make sure their letters are posted to the special Santa Post Box on Main Street outside the Tourist Office, before that date, as he will collect them all in his sack on the evening.
Santa is arriving to spread some Christmas cheer among the people of Gorey, and he will perform the ‘Big Switch On’ of the town’s Christmas lights at 7.30 p.m.
MC Dave Redmond will host entertainment on the stage from 6.45 p.m., and children are encouraged to be in town early to make sure they don’t miss Santa travelling up Main Street on his sleigh.
If children have a special question for Santa, they can email email@example.com and they might be one of the lucky children who will get a direct reply from the big man when he is interviewed on the night.
Gorey Chamber is asking all business to remain open to 7.30 p.m. on the night so people can continue to shop local.
