The Christmas season is now well underway and Manor West Shopping Centre and Retail Park are delighted to host its second “Taste of Tralee Food Fair”, in the shopping centre on Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th December from 12-6pm. The food fair will once again host numerous local artisan food producers offering fantastic handmade products from the heart of Kerry.

As well as Santa and his friends, Kingdom Party Pals will be there over the weekend with some fun characters such as Anna and Elsa. Radio Kerry’s Francis Jones will broadcast live from 11-2pm on Saturday and there will be a chance to win some fantastic spot prizes.

Derek Rusk, Shopping Centre Manager stated, “The food fair always goes down really well and it’s a chance for us to provide a different offering to our customers, as well as adding even more Christmas cheer to the centre! The atmosphere it creates is magnificent and we love seeing everyone enjoying themselves plus Santa will be here to add to the festive fun!”

The Food Fair is organised in conjunction with Taste Kerry and is a fantastic opportunity for many of the local artisan food producers to display their products and interact with a wider pool of customers. The November food fair received tremendous support, those involved were delighted with the turnout and are really looking forward to the next fair.

Children will be able to visit Santa and his friends for free every Thursday and Friday from 2-6pm and every Saturday and Sunday from 12-6pm, right up to December 23rd. Manor West will also have manned car parking areas over the festive period as well as extra parking opened daily behind Debenhams during peak traffic times. The parking as always is free of charge, so one less drain on the pocket!

Many more exciting events and activities are planned to take place in the shopping centre next year, making Manor West an even more enjoyable shopping experience.
