BIGGER, BETTER, BRIGHTER - GET READY FOR DUNGARVAN AGLOW 2018!Even at the height of the glorious summer, preparations were well underway to ensure that this year’s Dungarvan Aglow Festival is the most spectacular yet.Dungarvan & West Waterford Chamber’s funding application to the Waterford Leader Partnership CLG was approved in September, allowing the Chamber to order the most breathtaking feature to date to attract even more visitors to the 6 week Christmas festival.Jenny Beresford, CEO of Dungarvan Chamber says of the new feature “We’re thrilled to welcome a 21ft stag that will be displayed in Walton Park. This majestic stag is golden in colour and illuminated with thousands LED lights. We know for sure that people will travel to see this beautiful sight and want to have pictures taken near it”. Jenny goes on to say “These features can’t be underestimated as regards impact for promotion of Dungarvan. Every single year the Chamber receives calls from Councils throughout Ireland, other Chambers and also individuals - sometimes from as far as the UK, who have passed on the N25, been impressed and returned, or heard about Dungarvan and want to visit to see what we’ve done. “ This stunning piece stands 21 feet high, 15 foot long and 4.2 feet wide and was chosen for its wow factor, an effect that will be enjoyed by all those who view this illuminated creature. Funding for this piece was provided by Waterford Leader Partnership, which approved the project based on the established economic impact of Dungarvan Aglow since its inception 5 years ago. Recorded footfall, local business testimony and employment figures show that trade and employment are growing year on year during the Christmas festival and Waterford Leader Partnership’s support ensures that this growth can continue in 2018.Fundraising from local businesses has also allowed a complementary bespoke feature to be ordered for the Causeway quay side. A 10 foot high illuminated boat will glisten in the harbour, visible across the entire bay and creating dazzling reflections on the water. Waterford company Everyevent are working on this piece, as well as the new Christmas Photo Nook in Grattan Square which will be enjoyed by thousands of people over the six week festival. Waterford Council have once again provided significant financial support for this year’s festival, contributing €20,000 in festival funding that will cover the direct costs for the turning on of the lights, local & national advertising, video promotion, signage, printing and certain events. As well as this financial contribution, the Waterford Council also undertake the considerable annual task of storing, maintaining, installing and removing all the Christmas lights in Dungarvan, providing essential support with the operations and logistics connected to running a smooth 6 week festival. When asked about Dungarvan Aglow; Councillor Damien Geoghegan said “ Waterford Council are delighted to support the 6 week Dungarvan Aglow festival. Having observed its sustainable growth, innovation and community involvement, we see Dungarvan Aglow as an important strand connecting community and businesses. Facilitating that feel good factor locals and visitors enjoy  from the  most unique Christmas Lights  a county town has to offer  is fantastic, but the knowledge that this is directly linked to an increase to both jobs and footfall in Dungarvan makes it completely worthwhile. “The Dungarvan Aglow Festival is a Dungarvan & West Waterford Chamber initiative organised by the Dungarvan Aglow team, a diverse group, many of whom are volunteers. The current team is comprised of Colette Bannon, Gerry O’Connor, Liam Power, Sinead Fahy, Michelle Daly, Jenny Beresford, Aileen Hogan, Nicky Sheehan, Maurice Butler, Orlaith Brady, Liam McDonnell, Evelyn Elstead, Damien Geoghegan & Ola Flynn.Speaking of the past festivals and what they expect from this year Colette Bannon, Chair of Dungarvan Aglow, said that the economic impacts are very impressive particularly as regards employment. Based on a survey of local businesses carried out earlier this year Dungarvan Aglow 2017 saw: - 51 of 78 businesses surveyed reporting increased sales - 153 part time workers increased to full time hours over Christmas - 55 new part time jobs createdAt a time when competition with online retailers is fierce this is an impressive performance that demonstrates Dungarvan’s ability to draw customers in and provide an attractive shopping destination.Dungarvan Aglow kicks off on Sunday November 18th in Grattan Square and has a busy calendar of events for the entire festival season to complement the beautiful illuminations and set-pieces. Many of these events will take place in local businesses and there will be a wide range including concerts, demonstrations, parties and children’s events. Whether it’s a romantic break or a family get together, Dungarvan Aglow has something for everyone - from the very young to the young at heart.Follow Dungarvan Aglow on Facebook or visit www.dungarvanaglow.ie for the latest information.
