Christmas lights switch-on in Inverness
The Christmas season is here! But before the hustle and bustle of Black Friday deals and Christmas shopping – it’s time for the Christmas lights switch-ons. On 18th November people in Inverness gathered together on the High Street to be part of this festive moment.
Many people arrived early to get the best spots and see the Procession. Children were holding their own lights and eagerly waiting for the countdown.
Senior and Youth Pipe Bands made 5 stops along the way to allow the little ones to count down from 5 and turn the lights on. A big crowd followed the musicians with the torches in their hands and created a festive atmosphere and warmed all of us at the same time.
Now Inverness is lit and the streets are full of a Christmas glow. It’s that time of the year when you hear the Christmas songs in every shop and restaurant and start to feel your heart filled with a warmth of excitement!
