Helensburgh Christmas Lights Switch On & Christmas Market

About Helensburgh Christmas Lights Switch On & Christmas Market

Guess who’s coming to see the Helensburgh lights this year….

In addition to fundraising, putting up all the Christmas lights and decorating the town’s impressive Christmas tree, Helensburgh’s volunteer elves are thrilled to announce they have planned a very special Switch On Event to launch the start of the town’s 2023 festive season.

The Christmas market traders will be offering lots of bargains for Christmas gifts and treats for everyone, the fairground rides will be providing thrills for all ages, and once again Community Entertainers will take to the stage to show their talents. There will be lots of choice of street food this year and huggable Christmas characters will be out and about, high fiving everyone!

In the lead up to the switch on as darkness approaches, the elves want to hear the biggest crowd of carol singers ever in the square welcome Santa on his first visit to Helensburgh this year.

The elves wish to thank all Helensburgh and Lomond businesses who help the group to bring the lights project to fruition, without their unstinting support the Christmas lights would not happen.
