Santa paid an early visit to Epworth and Crowle to spread a little Christmas cheer for the festive lights switch on.
In Epworth the town turned out in force for the annual event which saw primary school children Elspeth Bramble, George Metcalfe and Joshua Haigh carrying out the official turning on ceremony, having won a design a promotional poster competition.
Getting the crowds into the seasonal spirit were characters from Street Beat’s Christmas panto Buttons - the sequel to Cinderella - who donned their costumes to keep everyone entertained.
Kim Oakley from Street Beat this week thanked Epworth lights committee for allowing them to promote their show at the event.
Over in Crowle there was plenty of Christmas cheer as residents paid a visit to Santa and browsed round a variety of festive stalls.
