The Christmas lights are officially on.
And with St Patrick Street, Oliver Plunkett Street, Tuckey Street, Grand Parade, and a number of city centre Christmas trees already twinkling away, Cork City Council’s magical GLOW attraction is getting ready to welcome Cork families for free over four dates.
GLOW A Cork Christmas Celebration will see the return of the 12 Days of Christmas to the park, kicking off on Friday, November 25th, 2022.
“This magical story will be brought to life over four weekends in the run-up to Christmas with the return of drummers, dancers, hoola-hoops, golden egg-laying geese, splendid swans, and … at least one new bird, which definitely won’t fit in that pear tree!” said a Council spokesperson.
“The iconic ferris wheel will also return to Grand Parade.”
Entry to the Park is free but booking is required (you can book here), although walk-ups will be facilitated when possible.
GLOW’s opening hours will be from 4pm to 8pm on:
- Friday, 25th November to Sunday, 27th November
- Friday, 2nd December to Sunday, 4th December
- Friday 9th December to Sunday 11th December
- Friday 16th December to Sunday 18th December
In the coming days, almost seven kilometres of energy-efficient LED Christmas lights will be switched on at Opera Lane, Academy Street, Paul St, French Church Street and Carey’s Lane.
