It will begin to look a lot like Christmas around County Roscommon this weekend with the switching on of lights in Boyle and Roscommon Town.
Boyle will get the ball rolling this evening (Friday) when the lights will be switched on virtually by Boyle Chamber of Commerce at 8 p.m..
A Facebook page entitled Boyle at Christmas, which has been sponsored by Boyle Arts Festival with support from Arts Council, is the place to be this evening where you can see the Boyle Christmas Lights virtually switched on.
Then on Sunday, thanks to the Roscommon Town Christmas Lights Committee, Santa Claus will be switching on the Christmas lights for Roscommon remotely from the North Pole at 5 p.m.
Once again, this is an online event, and can can be viewed via YouTube. Just search YouTube for the MMCStreaming channel, where the event will be broadcast from, or click on the Facebook page for more details www.facebook.com/pg/MMCStreaming/posts
