Christmas In Cobh 2016

2010 Christmas in CobhFor the 2016 Events Guide please click here

Christmas In Cobh is an initiative of See You in Cobh and this is our ninth year of compiling the Events Guide.

This year we have again teamed up with Cobh Edition and our Events Guide is incorporated into the Cobh Edition Events, News and Info Guides which will be published on 4th December and 18th December. It will be available free of charge from most shops and retail outlets in Cobh.

Christmas in Cobh 201 begins on Saturday 26th November with an afternoon of Christmas Cheer followed by the switching on of the Cobh Christmas Lights.

From 3 pm Santa will greet children in the lobby of the Commodore Hotel, have a short chat with them and pose for photographs. He may even have little surprises for the children too!

Free Face Painting will also be available in the Commodore Hotel.

From 3 pm there will be an array of Christmas music on the bandstand in The Promenade and at 4.15 pmcomplimentary Hot Chocolate will be available for children from Truly Scrumptious with the compliments of the Cobh Branch of AIB Bank.

The children’s torch lit procession has become a huge favourite. This year the parade, led by Cobh Animation Team will leave from the playground in The Promenade at 5 pm and will travel along the waterfront to the Christmas tree where the lights will be switched on by one lucky child. This child will be the winner of an art competition organised by Cobh and Harbour Chamber and See You in Cobh.

The whole afternoon’s activities are a coming together of community and businesses to show Cobh at its best. The Christmas Lights are erected by Cobh and Harbour Chamber with support from the Cobh Municipal District. This is the 9th year that See You in Cobh are organising a Christmas in Cobh Event to coincide with the switching on of the Cobh Christmas Lights.

Please come along and be a part of this fantastic festive Community event in the centre of Cobh.

There are two Christmas in Cobh cards this year in a mixed pack with three of each cards in the packs. One features a beautiful snowy scene with St. Colman’s Cathedral in the background captured by Marie Flynn. The other feature the Promenade Bandstand under a blanket of snow, wonderfully captured by Ann Whitty. The proceeds of the cards fund the wonderful welcoming Christmas Tree at Belvelly – the gateway to Great Island .
