The Renfrew Christmas Lights switch on and festive celebrations will take place on Saturday 23rd November with a special visit from Santa himself.
There will be children’s entertainment throughout the day from noon, with stilt walkers, face painters, circus performers and a puppet show. Santa himself will be on hand to dish out presents to local youngsters in his grotto, while there will also be fun fair rides next to the High Street.
There will be a concert of traditional carols by the Renfrew Burgh Band and the big event takes place at 5pm when Renfrewshire’s Provost Anne Hall flicks the switch to light up the town centre, followed by a fireworks display set against the backdrop of the town hall tower.
The festive fun moves on to Johnstone a week later, with the Christmas Lights Switch-on in Houstoun Square on Saturday 30 November from noon until 5pm.
