Christmas will arrive in Clevedon this weekend when the festive lights are switched on for the festive season.
The event will bring the town together on Saturday afternoon and evening and it promises to be a winter-time festival of colour and joy.
The big moment, when the bright lights are turned on, is at 4.30pm, but there will be hours of family-friendly activities in the lead up to it.
Performances by the likes of the Salvation Army Band, Clevedon Comedy Theatre Club, the secondary school’s choir and dance team will keep the crowds interested from 3pm.
However, fairground rides, lots of Christmas craft stalls, mulled wine, hot food stands and charity tables will be open to the public from 1pm.
Clevedon Town Council chairman Linda Little and schoolchildren will turn the lights on – the youngsters are asked to assemble by WH Smith.
A spokesman for the town council said it promises to be an event not to be missed.
They added: “Cllr Little is very much looking forward to the Christmas lights switch-on this year in the town centre.
“There will be attractions in the Queens Square, late night shopping by the Triangle Traders with the lights being switched on at 4.30pm.
“There are additional new lights added to the display in Old Church Road, Kenn Road and around the clock tower.
“Make sure that Saturday is in your diary – it all starts at 1pm.
“It is going to be a great event for all ages, families and friends to enjoy an afternoon together in the town.”
