Christmas in Cork--Grand Parade, Cork

Christmas time in Cork: I dodge scampering children as they run from their parents--too excited in anticipation to ride the merry-go-round to wait any longer for their parents to catch up. The Ferris wheel goes round and round, offering views of the entire city. Young teens share a meal of crepes and kebabs with their crush. Families rush into and out of the Dunnes Store on St. Patrick's Street, bags in tow. A choral group sings carols outside of a hidden Christmas craft market. Street performers play the harp, violin, piano, guitar. I count the towering Christmas trees located around the city: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6...The lights at night create a magical ambiance.
