Christmas In Cobh is an initiative of See You in Cobh and this is our fifth year of compiling the Events Guide.
This year we have 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 1st December and 15th December. It will be available free of charge from most shops and retail outlets in Cobh.
Christmas in Cobh 2012 starts next Saturday, 1st December when Santa Claus arrives in Cobh. He will arrive from the Holy Ground in a parade of vintage vehicles at 12 noon and make his way to his grotto in Cobh Heritage Centre. Children can visit him from 12.30 to 4.30 pm for €5 including a parcel. Professional photographs, printed on the spot will also be available for €5. A free Arts and Crafts workshop will take place all afternoon. At 5pm St. Colman’s Pipe Band and Cobh Animation team will lead the Children’s torch lit procession from the Heritage Centre to the Christmas tree, where the lights will be switched on at 5.15pm. Cobh Confraternity Band and children carol singing will add plenty of Festive Cheer.
Our Christmas in Cobh Christmas cards are now on sale in English’s Card Shop and the Cathedral shop and we will be selling them in Garvey’s Super Valu on Thursday and Friday 29th & 30th November.
