The 2010 Better Ballina this Christmas campaign officially commences this week – when the busiest man of the moment, Santa Claus himself, takes time out to kick off the festivities.
Now in its second year, the Chamber of Commerce coordinated promotional drive will run for almost a month, from tomorrow, November 27, until Christmas Eve – giving back an extra special gift to customers this year.
Run in association with Ballina Town Council, businesses and stakeholders – the campaign aims to welcome local and visiting shoppers alike to the north Mayo capital.
Chamber of Commerce CEO, Sandra Cribben explained: “ This year, we have worked hard to create an even better shopping festival – with lots of events and attractions for all the family. Ballina is a great town and we want to show it off this Christmas. This festival is all about supporting the community and the customers who continue to invest in it,” she said.
A host of free events for all the family include the Moy Singers by Candlelight and the Rejoice Gospel Choir Christmas Concert.
Santa Claus will be in residence at the Winter Wonderland from Friday, December 3. Check schedule for other times and dates on www.ballinachamber.com
