Christmas cheer is going to be very chocolately in Donegal Town this Sunday!

The Cadbury Christmas Parade is making a very special appearance in Donegal Town on Sunday 17th December from 5pm.

The parade is one of the highlights of this year’s Cadvent celebrations, which will bring families from across the county to the town centre for a magical display of floats and fun.


The spectacle tells the story of a young child’s dream that takes him on a magical journey to meet the Master of Joy.

The story will be brought to life with a wonderful array of wacky floats, novel characters and creative entertainment that brings to life the magic of Christmas through a child’s eyes! Just look at all the fun to be had:


Donegal Town is welcoming the parade with great celebrations. Santa Claus will be in town at the Central Hotel before the parade.

From 2pm to 5pm this Sunday, Santa will be greeting children from the Central Hotel Balcony before the parade arrives at 5pm.

Cadbury wants everyone to do their bit to spread the festive spirit this year. Every person that tweets using #Cadvent during the month of December will help to push the dial on the giant Cadbury Joy-o-Meter, revealing a new prize to be given away each day in the countdown to Christmas.

Cadbury fans can follow all the action on Cadbury’s social channels where there will be daily prizes and giveaways for the best use of the hashtag #Cadvent.

Cadbury Cadvent ambassador and former Westlife sensation Kian Egan said “I am delighted to be on board with Cadvent this year. Cadbury have loads of great family activities planned for the month of December which will help to get everyone into the Christmas spirit.”

You can follow all the Cadvent activity throughout December, via Cadbury’s Facebook and Twitter pages.
