Santa Claus is coming to town! Newbridge gets set to welcome Father Christmas

Santa Claus at the Whitewater Shopping Centre

Santa Clause will be landing in Newbridge later this month.

The jolly old fella will be flying into the Whitewater Shopping Centre on his silver sleigh from 2pm on Saturday, Novemeber 18.

The festivites commence at 12pm, with renowned local Patrician Primary School Newbridge Band marching through the town, leading Santa’s parade to his enchanted grotto.

Local Gardaí will close Newbridge main street to traffic and escort the Santa from Newbridge Garda Station to his Newbridge base in the Whitewater.

Once Santa has settled into his Newbridge home, Santa and his friendly helpers will be welcoming visitors from Saturday November 18, until Sunday December 24.

Meeting Santa is free for all. Instead, donations are invited to Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind.
