Traders opened late while families enjoyed a giant snowball fight on Thursday evening.

Bideford enjoyed a night of mistletoe and magic with its late night shopping event on Thursday.

The night also ended with a giant ‘snowball’ fight - using makeshift snowballs from balled-up socks.

Tonia Quance, of organiser Businesses of Bideford, said: “It was amazing, the adults having just as much fun as the kids, screams of laughter, and it went on for ages.

“It was certainly something to be repeated, but the whole evening was fabulous and the atmosphere was truly magical.
