Tralee Chamber Alliance and Kerry County Council come together to pull out all the stops for the county capital this Christmas.
Tralee Chamber Alliance and Kerry County Council would this year like to focus on bringing key family interactive events of a high standard to Tralee this Christmas. With the support of Oliver Hurley Productions, the aim will be to bring the magic of Christmas to the streets of Tralee through new and creative initiatives.
The focus is to run major interactive events with the objective being to bring people from all over Kerry and further to Tralee town in the lead-up to Christmas. Building on the wonderful decorations and lighting of previous years the proposed events will also enhance the visuals in the town centre, creating a magical and festive kingdom.
The preparations for the Christmas season have been warmly welcomed by the Mayor of Tralee, Cllr Mikey Sheehy: ‘Kerry County Council is proud to be the main sponsor of the Christmas festivities in our county capital. Christmas is always a special time for family and community and this year, there is a wonderful programme of events being arranged for people of all ages. I would encourage everyone to participate and to enjoy the holiday season,’ he said.
“There’s something for all ages this year in Tralee, while the town is already established as having one of the top festive light displays in the country, we are really building on that and utilising the fantastic amenities including the Kerry County Museum and Island of Geese while showcasing some of the local talent we have here in North Kerry. There will be a competition “Follow the Magic” running throughout the build-up to Christmas which will put the focus on our wonderful retailers, there will be a new guy in town or should I say “new Elf” ……….. watch this space and all will be revealed later! And as you’d expect there will be Christmas markets with some fantastic shows for family’ every weekend through December, culminating in what is traditional end to the celebrations in Tralee, a firework display on New Year’s Eve. “ Colette O’Connor – CEO Tralee Chamber Alliance
