Main Street, My Street Bangor celebrated the Bangor Light Switch On with a marvellously jolly afternoon of free festive family fun in the stores. The highlight of the day was a visit from the Snowman who was out and about meeting and greeting shoppers in Menarys and Excel Clothing before he took centre stage at the Lantern Parade with Santa and helped turn on Bangor’s lights.

Santa letter writing workshops, craft, face painting, balloon modelling and glitter tattoos were all part of the schedule for the day which saw hundreds of families flock to the town for the popular event that marks the beginning of the festive season!
