Sunday, December 2 is the date to stick in the diary for the lighting up of the town. The celebrations will kick off at noon and continue through until 7pm, with the big switch on itself at 5pm. On the quayside will be Phil Vanstones childrens fairground rides, as well as a whole host of food and drink stalls. Entertainers will also be walking around the Quay, with balloon modelling, facepainting and stilt-walkers. Dreckly the Dragon will be entertaining crowds as he parades up and down the Quay as well. And on the main stage on the Quay will be live music and performances from local choirs and bands. Take a trip up to the pannier market, where youll have a chance to meet and greet some friendly alpacas and visit Santa in his grotto. At 5pm crowds will gather on the Quay to watch the town light up with Christmas cheer. Then between 5-5.30pm Santa will then tour around the town with his reindeers, as he travels along Mill Street. This will be followed with a fantastic firework display at 6.45pm to see the evening to a close with a bang. The whole thing has been organised by South West Event Management Solutions.
