*** Please note this event is now sold out! But you can still come along on the day to watch Santa arrive, line the streets and cheer on the cyclists and celebrate the launch of Christmas in Kilkenny!!***
‘Bling your bike’ and join Santa for the second part of his journey and take part in Santa City’s Cycle. Meet him as he comes off the boat at Canal Square, then take the green option and join environmentally conscious Santa as he takes his bike on the road. Dress up in your Christmas jumpers and decorate your bike for this procession through the city, ending on the Parade where we’ll light up the Christmas Tree and officially begin Yulefest 2021!
Yulefest is partnering with Cycle Kilkenny to help Santa on his journey to Kilkenny! Pedal power will transport Santa on his elf-powered cycling invention through the city centre. Artist and inventor, Paddy Bloomer, has designed the eco-elf mobile from recycled materials and 6 elves at a time will pedal-power this through the marble city streets.
All young cyclists are invited to follow Santa on his journey so, light up your bike, your scooter or your wheels and meet us on Canal Square at 2pm on November 27th ready to leave with for Santa’s City Cycle at 3pm.
Pre-registration for this event is essential. All children must register to join Santa on his cycle and by registering you pledge to make an effort to make greener choices. Those who register and make the pledge will receive a special cycling gift that can be collected on the day! Children should be accompanied by a parent or guardian on the cycle.
