Carlow’s first Christmas Market 2018

The Town Hall Square in Carlow Town was the place to be. From Friday 14th to Sunday 16th December for Carlow’s first Christmas Market 2018.

There are more than 50 craft stalls. Local producers include Under the Oak Tree Designs, Toyfix, Jo Browne, Elaine Scully Styling and Sweet Baking Mama, and many more. Also a Christmas Classics cinema, a beautiful golden Vintage Carousel, food stalls, and Mr. and Mrs. Claus. Moreover, despite the weather, a fantastic illumination show captivated the crowds of people.

Stuart Montgomery organized the event in partnership with Carlow County Council and its Local Enterprise Office.

Stunning Illumination Shows were projected onto the local Carlow Town Hall each evening on December 14th, 15th & 16th.

This free spectacle was one of the highlights of Carlow’s Christmas market.

Two free movies will be shown each evening and the free illumination shows run for 15 minutes every half hour from 5 pm each day. Mr. and Mrs. Claus will arrive at 2 pm on the opening day until 7 pm and will be open for visitors to their grotto on Saturday and Sunday from 12-6 pm.

I made a video (you can find it on my YouTube channel). And below you will find the photos from this fantastic Christmas event.
