Don’t miss the New Year’s Eve firework display in Denny Street
WHILE it’s natural to expect the New Year’s Eve entertainment to focus on the countdown to midnight, it’s good to know the organisers of Christmas events in Tralee believe people of all ages should get to welcome 2019 to Tralee.
The New Year’s Eve Firework Display takes place at 7pm on Denny Street, Monday, December 31 giving families and partygoers a rare opportunity to celebrate New Year’s Eve in the capital at an earlier time.
The temperatures won’t be quite on a par with the last time a firework display was seen at the Rose of Tralee festival in August. But this is easily resolved by wrapping up well and getting out there to enjoy some mid-winter illuminations over Tralee.
The atmosphere is always electric and it’s the perfect event to start your New Year’s celebrations in Tralee. Big crowds are expected in Denny Street so people are advised to arrive early. CHRISTMAS should be one of the happiest days of the year for children but sadly for many less fortunate youngsters it can be a day marred with sadness.
Once again Caball’s Toymaster in Tralee and St Vincent de Paul have teamed up to make sure that doesn’t happen to any child in Kerry and that Christmas - as it should be - is a day of joy for everyone.
The Caball’s/SVP annual appeal has been a great success in previous years, with hundreds of children from less well-off families in Tralee and its surrounding areas receiving toys thanks to thousands of euros in donations from the public.
To help a child in need all you need do is drop into Caballs Toymaster on Bridge Street in Tralee and buy a special voucher - for any amount.
All the money raised will then go to St Vincent de Paul who will use it to buy toys and gifts from a wish list submitted by local children. If you wish, you can also buy a toy on the list.
Anne Laide of Caballs said she and her staff are always delighted to be able to help St Vincent de Paul and they are absolutely determined that no child should go have to go without a toy on Christmas morning.
To make a donation or to find out more about this hugely important appeal just call into Caballs. Every child should smile on Christmas morning so please do what you can to help. Remember no amount is too small so even if you can only spare a euro or two please help make a child’s Christmas.
