Dublin city council are hoping to break the world record for the number of people wearing Christmas jumpers this weekend as part of the turning on ceremony for the lights on O'Connell street.

Dublin council divided Dublin into four zones for the turning on of the Christmas lights in Dublin this year. The lights have already been turned on in Grafton and Henry street with Smithfield scheduled to be turned on this Thursday and O'Connell street on Sunday.

Each ceremony is a free family event with lots of fun, entertainment and live musical performances. The event on Sunday on O'Connell street will be hosted by Al Porter & Dustin the Turkey with performances by the Hallelujah Gospel Choir at 4pm, the Olympia Christmas Panto at 4.30pm, 5pm Craddog at 5pm and The Academic at 5.30pm. 

There will also be an attempt to break the world record for the most number of people wearing Christmas jumpers.

To encourage visitors to get involved anyone wearing a Christmas Jumper can travel FREE on Luas all day. There is no need to buy a Luas ticket or swipe your Leap Card - just show your Christmas jumper if you are asked to show your ticket .
