The winter spectacles then featured as part of the Shercock Christmas lights display in December 2012. The turning on of the christmas lights took place on December 9th 2012 on the Fair Hill.

It looked magical with fairy lights all around and the lovely illuminated snowmen and penguins. There was festive entertainment comprising of dancing christmas trees, a recital of  'twas the night before christmas', local musicians, carol singing and some dancing.

For the adults, there was mulled wine and mince pies served, and for the children - a visit from Santa, who brought a little treat for every child. Then all the children took a ride on the Shercock Express. All free of charge.
