The man himself, Mr Claus will be travelling to the ‘switch on’ by vintage car from his cosy grotto at Market Cross Shopping Centre where he has been busily meeting all the fantastic children from Kilkenny.

Santa Claus will be joined by ‘Trix the Elf’ who will be skipping down John Street to the beautiful Remembrance Tree on the Parade to help with the ‘switch-on’. Watch out for Little Red Riding Hood and her friends from the Watergate Theatre’s Panto Group who will be meeting all the children of Kilkenny ahead of her post Christmas performance.

Musical entertainment on Saturday will be provided by St Patrick’s Brass Band, so an enjoyable time for all is promised.

Everyone is encouraged to attend at 4pm on Saturday, and kick Christmas off in Kilkenny.
