Kippax Celebrates 30th Christmas Lights Switch-On

Published: 22 November 2019

 

 It was a special year for the Christmas Lights Switch-On as we celebrated 30 years!

Our team worked incredibly hard to pull an event together that was bigger and better than ever before, including a brand new stage and set-up, more stalls, more lights and more fireworks!

 

It was fantastic to see so many people come out to celebrate and enjoy the fantastic line-up of entertainment, hosted by Pulse FM’s Danny Mylo and Rosie! A massive thank you to everyone who entertained the crowds including DJ Harry’s, Lorraine’s Dance School, Caroline’s Dance School, Kippax Brownies & Guides, Bare Brass Band, Kippax Brass Band and KAOS, Rob Chew and Gemma Riggon.

  

We were also lucky to have both Ronnie Rhino and JT Tiger entertaining the crowds as well as Reverend Rosemary sharing an important Christmas message.

Our Santa’s Grotto was as popular as ever, a massive thank you to our special Santa and his wonderful little elves - and we were also pleased to announce this year’s Christmas Card winners on stage. We have had eight of the Christmas Cards made into flags - have you spotted them along the High Street? Keep an eye out for our lovely painted friends around the village too, including a Robin, Snowman, Santa's Sleigh and Nativity Scene!

 

Talking of the High Street, competition was fierce yet again for the Best Dressed Window Competition with our team of judges awarding the 2019 prize to Pat’s Sweet Shop for her fantastic Elf on the Shelf-themed display!

 

  

 Would you believe work is already beginning on 2020? We’ve had a de-brief and collated lots of feedback and new ideas ready to put into action! If you have any ideas, or are interested in being involved in anyway, including with a stand - get in touch - gail.hardwick@kippax-pc.gov.uk!
