Tralee Chamber in partnership with Kerry County Council is delighted to announce the return of the ‘Christmas Parade’ in partnership with Sean Murphy Electrical and local business community to its Christmas in Tralee Festive Programme. Set to captivate spectators from 2pm this Saturday, December 2nd, and Sunday, December 17th, this extraordinary event promises to bring joy and wonder to families throughout Tralee.
As the festive spirit takes centre stage in Tralee, ‘Santa’s Magical Fairytale Parade’ is poised to be a visual feast that will wind its way through Pembroke Street, down Rock Street, Russell Street, along The Mall and culminate in a festive celebration in The Square.

We believe it will not only create magical moments for families but also showcase our town’s charm, bolstered by the generous support of local businesses. This event adds another layer of festive magic to Tralee, ensuring it remains a must-visit destination during the Christmas season.”
The much-anticipated parade is set to feature beloved fairytale characters, festive floats and lively dancers with attendees encountering the Snow King and Queen, Disney Fairytale Princesses, Dancing Toy Soldiers, Fairy Twinkle, Elf companions, the whimsical Gingerbread Man, Giant Polar Bears and, of course, Santa Claus himself.
