The Christmas parade makes a welcome return to Tramore this year, as local children are invited to join Santa and his special friends to kick start the festive season down Main Street at 5pm on Friday, December 2nd.

Along with the parade, there will be live music, food trails and lots of Christmas cheer spread throughout the town.

Christmas in Tramore is organised by Waterford Chamber, in conjunction with Waterford City & County Council and EveryEvent and speaking about the festival Lynda Lawton, Operations Officer with Waterford Chamber says, “It’s great to be able to plan a full festival again post Covid and we are adding extra magic touches this year to reflect that. Thanks to festival funding from Waterford City & County Council, we can support a number of community groups who have their own Christmas offering while also having live music every weekend and Santa has promised he will visit every Saturday too! 

“This is a celebration for the whole community and everyone is welcome to join the parade for the launch. The fabulous children from the Vicki Graham Stage School will entertain us on the Plaza and Santa will meet with the boys and girls to make sure they have been good this year!

“We also want people to come out every Saturday to shop local, support the restaurants and enjoy some live music along the way. 

“We will have lots of decorations and installations going up throughout the town, so bring the camera and make some memories at the fantastic displays.”
