WATCH: Mystery as penguins are spotted on the streets of Waterford

There were some strange scenes in Waterford City this week as penguins were spotted out and about on the streets. Although the conditions are set to turn colder, we're not sure it's quite penguin weather yet!

The penguins are part of the promotion for the 2018 Winterval Festival in the city, and rumour has it, they're calling themselves the early birds.

Winterval will bring the spirit of Christmas to Waterford this year with stalls, entertainment and events, including the much-anticipated Winterval on Ice.

Winterval on Ice will take place again this year at the Gasworks Car Park, Waterside, as part of the Winterval Festival.

With 600sqm of real ice, there’s a large main rink and a separate smaller rink with skating aids to help our younger visitors find their ice legs. There’s also a schools skate offer, student skate deals, group and midweek offers, special events and tasty festive food!

Best prices are available by pre-booking online and sometimes sell out quickly so advance booking is advised at www.iceskating.ie.
