Roscommon town’s Christmas lights will shine brightly from Sunday, November the 24th with the ‘switch-on’ set for 5 pm in the Town Square. Santa has agreed to travel to Roscommon once again to perform the formal duties!
Roscommon Christmas Light Committee have been busy over the past number of weeks, checking lights, doing repairs and putting up the lights on Sunday mornings.
The committee endeavours to add a few new features every year and Dermot Hughes (Chairperson) of the Light Committee said that a few new features will be on show this year.
Dermot urges the public to turn out again in big numbers this year to show their support for the volunteers who make Roscommon the envy of many other towns.
Members of Roscommon Chamber will again provide hot chocolate on Main Street, Roscommon Town before the ‘switch-on’. Molloy’s Artisan Bakery, Gleeson’s Townhouse, Rogue & Co., The Good Place, Comfy Café, Regan’s Restaurant, Jackson’s Restaurant and Peppermill Restaurant have come together to provide a little treat for young and old.
Don’t forget your coat and festive hat on the night…
