Although the pedestrian traffic was spare at the beginning at the Dublin Holiday Faire, the traffic seemed to be picking up as the showers subsided long enough for the sun to peek out from behind the grey rain clouds.
The holiday faire, which had been moved inside due to the bad weather, was held at the Heritage Park and Museum. It had several interactive areas for visitors to enjoy including a visit with Santa and his helpers inside the church, "snow" near the barn, wagon rides, crafts and snacks.
Jasmine Donnelly, who is the Senior Recreation Leader of special events for the city, said traffic was picking up. She said the event is staffed by volunteers.
"We have an average of 80 Heritage Guild volunteers," she said. "We have students helping from schools all over."
Dublin's annual holiday tree lighting was also held, despite the sporadic showers, on Thursday.
