We’ve just had a fantastic weekend of festive events to officially kick off the Christmas season in Thomastown – which we’ve re-named ‘ToyTown’ for the coming few weeks!
The highlight for most – especially the children of the community – came on Friday evening, when Santa Claus himself came to town. The Scouts marched along in front as the Fire Service gave him a lift in a Fire Engine, and the streets were lined with boys and girls and mammies and daddies, all excited to see him up close and all giving him big waves. Have a look at some of the highlights of the evening:
A Christmas Concert took place later on Friday evening, before a whole series of events for all ages were held throughout Saturday and Sunday, culminating with a ‘Tots to Teens’ disco in the Community Centre on Sunday evening.
The whole weekend was a fantastic success, and sincere thanks to go everybody who helped make it possible.
