Despite the cold weather hundreds of people turned out to see the Huntingdon Christmas Lights switched on. The weather held and despite terrible forecasts the rain didn’t come and families were able to come together in the centre of the town to start the Christmas celebrations. Father Christmas was in his grotto; his elves were busy helping youngsters make Christmas decorations and writing letters to him with their requests to fill their stockings on Christmas Eve. Every child was given a small free gift.

The LIVE nativity was a popular addition to the event and admirers of the young donkeys without names made suitable suggestions. The Town churches had a puppet show at the Live Nativity which drew the crowds into the Market Square. Many charity stalls took part; some offering seasonal mulled wine and mince pies. Snow machines in the square attracted many people taking photos of themselves and others covered in snow. The balloon man made balloon animals for the children and the stilt walker strode boldly around the town. There were fairground rides and a Helter Skelter along with delicious food and traditional roast chestnuts. Residents remarked upon the great atmosphere which the event brought to Huntingdon.

At 5pm Bob Elliott, the HCR104fm presenter announced a countdown to the crowd and the delightful lazer display began lighting up the night sky and the buildings around the square. At 5.15pm the Mayor of Huntingdon, Councillor Daryl Brown, together with Father Christmas both standing on the Town Hall balcony, switched on the lights throughout the streets turning the ancient town into an almost fairy tale scene.
