Christmas Extravaganza - The Lights

The lights were turned on by the Abingdon's Got Talent winners.

Best Shop front competition went to the finishing touch.

Father Christmas was there.

And Punch & Judy.

Helen and Douglas House won the fancy dress shop competition.

This shot of the fireworks was taken by Elizabeth Drury on the roof of the County Hall.

And this was taken by me from down below.

You beat me to it! It was a great evening, and seemed a lot more bustling than last year. We had lots of fun in the shop, and we'll definitely do the hot punch again, 'cos on such a chilly evening it was very well received!

It was a fantastic evening. Big thumbs up to everyone who helped to organise it, I thought it was amazing!

Beautiful photographs of the lights and fireworks.

It was the first time I had experienced the ceremony (I would normally be at work). I was amazed at the number of people who were out and supporting their town.

A lovely experience.
