Ambleside Xmas Lights Switch On

Every year on the 3rd Saturday of November the people of Ambleside parade through the town at dusk, carrying hundreds of paper lanterns.

Young and old turn out to witness this spectacular procession, as traffic is halted.  Christmas street lights throughout the town centre are switched on as if by magic by Santa Claus. T

Charity stalls, family fun, live music and costumed characters. After dark, everyone gathers in Rothay Park for the firework finale.

And it is all free so don't miss out....
