Get into the festive spirit at the annual Newtownards Christmas Light Switch On
Newtownards’ Switch On event will be immersed in rhythm and colour when Spark! leads the popular, annual lantern parade bringing high impact drumming, stunning costumes and Kaldescopic lighting to Ards.
Prior to this, families can enjoy a stage programme from 6pm, compered by local favourite, Cool FM’s Pete Snodden, and featuring winners from the recent ‘Web’s Got Talent’ competition.
Face painting and balloon modelling will also keep the ‘little ones’ entertained while waiting for the festivities to begin, starting in Conway Square at 5.30pm.
The official switch by Mayor of Ards and North Down, Councillor Robert Adair, takes place at 7pm.
