THE Rose of Tralee, Kirsten Mate Maher, and the Mayor of Tralee, Cllr Graham Spring, will switch on the Christmas Lights in The Square, Tralee at 5pm this Saturday, heralding the start of five weeks of Festive fun in Kerry’s Shopping Capital.

Tralee boasts the most colourful and decorative Christmas lights and they can be enjoyed while shopping for gifts or spending time with family, friends or colleagues in the run-up to the most wonderful time of the year.

There will be live music under the Marquee in The Mall throughout Christmas in Tralee, and the New Year’s Eve Fireworks Display on Denny Street from 7pm on Monday, December 31 will give families an opportunity to ring in 2019 in style.

Free parking has long been a key aspect of the Christmas season to encourage shoppers to come into the town centre and once again, Tralee Municipal District are offering FREE on-street parking and in council carparks from 1pm daily from Monday, December 3 to Sunday, January 6.

The Mayor of Tralee, Cllr Graham Spring, said: “There isn’t a retailer, hotelier, restaurateur, publican, or attraction provider in Tralee who won’t go the extra mile to ensure that the Christmas experience for locals and visitors is the most memorable ever. The Councillors in Tralee Municipal District fully support Tralee Chamber Alliance who are proud to promote Tralee as Kerry’s Shopping Capital all year round.”

Much of the entertainment and activities to promote Tralee as a great shopping and fun destination throughout Christmas would not be possible without the support of the members of Tralee Chamber Alliance.

The President of Tralee Chamber Alliance, Aidan Kelly, said: “With the recent launch of the Tralee Voucher, a line-up of great music and events in Tralee, and free parking throughout the festive season, there are loads of great reasons to do your shopping locally throughout the town.”
