Since 2000, the Christmas Street Light Committee has been lighting up Portarlington in an effort to bring festive cheer and atmosphere to our town, which has always been generously supported by our Traders. The Christmas Street Lights Committee are a group of volunteers & a sub-committee of the Portarlington Business Association (PBA).
What’s new this year?
This year, in particular, has been significantly challenging for all and we therefore plan to increase our Street Light footprint to extend downwards from Main Street to the Barrow Bridge. With this planned extension comes in an increase in costs, which include new overhead purchases, new bulbs, repairs to existing fixtures etc. As this is done on a voluntary basis by this small team, we continue to rely on your generosity towards making this event work & warmly welcome any donation you can give through this page!
When will the Portarlington Christmas Street Lights be switched on?
The lights will go live on Friday, November 27th, we look forward to seeing you then! This is an annual family event and a joyous occasion for our town, your support will go a long way towards securing the success of this event once again this year! (social distancing permitting)
Making a difference!
This year, the Christmas Lights Committee will be investing in LED Lights, which is significantly more efficient in electricity usage than regular bulbs – a small contribution towards a greener footprint
Sincere thank you in advance for your ever-generous support:
