With only days left to Frostival on Friday, November 27th, the line up of events taking place in and around the Dundalk Town Centre for the Festival which marks the start of Dundalk’s Christmas season, is now complete.
Fiona Cunningham of Dundalk BIDS and a core organiser of ‘Frostival’ said that excitement is building up for the Festival this Friday evening.
“So many people have put time and energy into this festival, which will move beyond Friday with Dundalk on Ice, who have secured sponsorship from SIRO, and also our investment in the new Log Cabin Christmas Market.
“All we can say at this stage is that we hope as many people as possible come in to enjoy the Festival and support Dundalk Town Centre this Christmas season.”
Dundalk’s ‘King’, Stephen Kenny will officially open the Dundalk on Ice indoor ice rink on the Market Square. Dundalk on Ice – which recently announced its main sponsor this year as SIRO, the ESB/Vodafone joint venture which is delivering Ireland’s first 100% fibre-optic broadband network to 51 towns nationwide – promises to be every bit as enjoyable as last year, and is once again being operated by Planet Ice.
