  • The Gibraltar Christmas lights were switched at the Winter Party in November

The Christmas lights in the town centre were due to be switched on last Friday but due to the bad weather it was decided to incorporate the Festival of Lights into the Winter Party in Town on Saturday afternoon and evening, instead and what a truly spectacular show it was.

Music, dance, Santa Claus, illuminated Christmas hats, the light show and a fantastic atmosphere got the festivities off to a great start. Casemates Square was packed for the event, the first of many between now and 6 January.
