Crowds came along to celebrate Ardrossan’s Christmas Switch-on at the weekend.

Santa paraded from Princes Street to the Civic Centre before the lights were turned on and the fun began.

The parade set off from Garfield’s at 4.45pm on Sunday, December 8, and arrived for the switch-on at 5pm.

Ardrossan Community Development Trust organised an outdoor DJ at the Civic Centre playing from 4.30pm till 7pm.

The choir entertained with some enchanting songs and then a performance from Dance Mania gave the event an electric atmosphere.

Nazarene Church delighted families by screening Christmas movies after the switch-on.

Children were lucky enough to pay a visit to Santa and even received a small gift.
