In light of current circumstances and rising COVID case numbers in the Drogheda region Love Drogheda BID have taken the decision to cancel this evening's scheduled Christmas Light Switch on event in light of public health measures.
"This is not an easy decision as there will be many disappointed families, friends, performers, musicians and team of organisers" a spokesperson said.
"The lights will go on this weekend and we would encourage people to come into town of their own accord over the next number of days and weeks and enjoy the fantastic display of lights whilst supporting local businesses and eateries in a safe and responsible manner.
"We know you will be as disappointed as we are but this is the right decision for our current times to protect all our families in the lead up to Christmas."
