‘ Winter Won­der­land preper­a­tions un­der­way al­ready’

Santa’s coming to Quay­side

The Sligo Champion - - NEWS -

THERE’S some­thing magic about Christ­mas, and that some­thing is the ex­cite­ment and hap­pi­ness we see as the magic and won­der of this spe­cial time of year spreads across the faces of our chil­dren.

This year Quay­side have teamed up with Ocean Me­dia and Fee­hilys Florists to cre­ate a very very spe­cial winter won­der­land with an au­t­en­tic log cabin be­ing brought in spe­cially from the North Pole for the ar­rival of the man him­self, Santa Claus.

Two floors of the city cen­ter shop­ping cen­ter are go­ing to be trans­formed into an im­mer­sive ex­pe­ri­ence. From the main street level there will be an en­trance into the Winter Won­der­land in what prom­ises to be the big­gest event of its kind in the re­gion.

“We have been work­ing with Fee­hily’s and other lo­cal sup­pli­ers to cre­ate a truly mag­i­cal ex­pe­ri­ence that will ri­val any sim­i­lar event in the coun­try, we are in­vest­ing in mak­ing Quay­side and sub­se­quently Sligo THE place to come and see Santa.

“We all have memories of the real mag­i­cal ex­pe­ri­ences at Christ­mas and we are com­mit­ted to pro­vid­ing some­thing very mem­o­rable for young and old”, said Daniel Browne from Ocean Me­dia, who are or­gan­is­ing the event.

He would not be drawn on fur­ther de­tails other than to say there will be a Christ­mas mar­ket for adults as well as a two story im­mer­sive Christ­mas ex­pe­ri­ence for kids. How­ever he did re­veal the re­turn of the fa­mous Quay­side ‘ Santa pa­rade’ on De­cem­ber 1st.

“Santa and his Sleigh will be tour­ing the streets of Sligo to say hello to all the boys and girls on De­cem­ber 1st be­fore his big ar­rival at Quay­side and the of­fi­cial open­ing of the Winter won­der­land.
