Carlow Town`s Christmas Light 2020

Every year I took a part in the ceremony of Christmas Lights switch on at Carlow town. It was my favourite Winter’s Event. Especially I liked Éist Candlelight Walk of Hope.

The Éist Cancer Support Centre Carlow annual Candlelight Walk of Hope 2020, was go virtual this year and was take place on Saturday 21st November at 4.30pm.

As we coudn`t come together this year for annual Candlelight Walk of Hope Ceremony, we would light a candle at home at 4.30pm. In lieu of the physical walk and annual candle sales event, we could make an online donation for Éist Cancer Support Centre.

We all miss event like this. Every year thousand people joined to candle lit walk. It was annual a really special event for the entire community of Carlow. We was walking through the Town lead by the Carlow Pipe Band, Carlow Regional Youth Services, Santa and Wibbly Wobbly Wendy to the Liberty Tree fountain for the turning on of the Christmas Lights. Santa collected the first letters at the postbox on Castle Hill. Mayor Murnane switched on the Christmas Lights, which has kick-started a month of Festive Family Fun across the county.

This year we had Carlow Town`s Christmas Light 2020 as a Virtual Light Ceremony.

The Mayor and Santa was light the lights in Carlow live on Facebook on Saturday 21st November.

Today like every year Santa post box appeared on Castle Street.

Also Carlow town`s pubs are joining with thousand of pubs across the country and turning theirs Christmas Lights. This is to highlight their readiness to reopen safely.

Since today every evening we can admire beautiful lights at main streets of Carlow town. Christmas season officially begun.
