Experience the magic of Christmas at Frostival Winter Festival on Friday 23rd and Saturday 24th of November marking the start of the festive season in Dundalk Town Centre.
The BIG attraction at this year’s festival is the Carnival of Light parade – the procession will be like a winter fairy tale come to life with the Nutcracker prince spinning fire, a flying fairground horse, troupe of Dancing Christmas Stars performed by Funky Feet, the Sugar plum fairy, giant snowflakes, huge golden baubles light up the street, Rudolph prances and dances, a Snowman cycles in a sparkling snowstorm and Santa is high above the crowd on his magic bicycle!
Departing from the Longwalk Shopping Centre Dundalk at 6.10pm and weaving it’s way through the streets, illuminating the town centre on it’s magical Christmas Journey:
Parade Route: Longwalk SC | Green Church | Clanbrassil Street | Crowe Street | Francis Street | Park Street | Magnet Road | Market Square
