Count­down is on for the big Christ­mas switch on

Gorey Guardian - - NEWS -

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 the­bigswitchon­ 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.
