CHRISTMAS is on the way to Athy!
This year’s ‘Big Switch’ event will take place this Sunday 27 November in Emily Square, with the celebrations kicking off at 6pm.
The switch on of the Christmas lights will kick start seasonal celebrations and the shop local campaign and large crowds are expected at this wonderful and very popular event for Athy Municipal District.
There’ll be a big red post box for all the letters to Santa and DJ Gary will keep you entertained until the special guest arrives in style in the big truck from the North Pole to do the honours!
It’s funded by local property tax allocation from elected representatives in Athy Municipal District.
Mark your diary!
