A short video I produced of the official turning on of the Christmas Lights in the Mall, Castlebar, on November 28th 2014. There was a great turn out on a cold winters evening but thanks to Aaron from Cafe Rua we were treated to free hot drinks! Castlebar Gospel Choir sang while Santa arrived with the help of Castlebar Men's Shed. Santa greeted all the kids and the mammies and daddies and even collected a few letters while he was there. Helen O'Hara from Love Castlebar was there to paint a few faces too.
Then the lights were officially turned on by Cllr Al McDonald and Martina, a local athlete. This year the full circle of trees were lit and it is an impressive sight! Next the evening was finished with performances from the Castlebar Town Band, and then some songs from local musicians Chris and Dave who were accompanied by St Joeseph's Girls Choir.
