On Saturday, November 17, International Rose of Tralee, Kirsten Mate Maher joined Santa and the mayor in Waterford City for the launch of the seventh annual Winterval, Ireland’s largest Christmas festival. They gathered in John Roberts Square to turn on the city’s Christmas lights, with a musical performance by local band Brass & Co.

Earlier in the day, Santa’s elves hit the streets for an exclusive “Golden Ticket” giveaway, offering free entry to some of Winterval’s top attractions, including the Enchanted Christmas, a brand new Santa experience at the Old Postal Sorting Centre; the Winterval Express Train and Sleigh; Winterval on Ice; and rides on the Waterford Eye, Carousel, and Helter Skelter. Clues for the giveaway were promoted on Winterval’s social media.

Over 500,000 visitors attended Winterval 2018, which ran until December 23rd. There were over sixty events at Ireland’s Christmas capital.

“These events will certainly sprinkle some festive magic on what is sure to be an amazing festival this year in Ireland’s Christmas capital,” said Festival Director Tommie Ryan. ♦
