Preparations are well underway as we put the finishing touches to our festive family events being held this December. The free events include Santa switching on the Christmas lights at the Colin Town Square on Thursday 12th December and a Christmas themed Safe & Well Information Day on Friday 6th December.
The first of these festive events is the Community Safety Fair which will be held in the Dairy Farm Shopping Centre from 3.00 pm. This is an opportunity to receive helpful information from a range of organisations on how to stay safe and well over the Christmas period. The event includes free Christmas treats and Christmas carol singing from local school children.
Families will enjoy a festive treat when Santa arrives to Colin Town Square on Thursday 12th December at 6.30 pm. Santa will be making use of the Glider to switch on the lights of the Colin Christmas tree. Children and parents will have an opportunity to get their photo taken with Santa in the rapid transport HUB and receive a small gift. Revellers will also enjoy live music and Christmas carols by local school children from Scoil na Fuiseoige and Crescendo, Colin community choir. The event will also feature Bungee Trampolines, Racing Reindeers, Rodeo Bull, Bumper Cars Spinners, Mini Golf, Last One Standing and Paw Patrol Toddler Play.
There will also be festive arts and crafts where youngsters are able to make colourful Christmas decorations, yule logs, crafts, wreaths and Christmas gifts. Families can also capture some special festive memories in our free photo booth.
