« Back to 2000
Stranraer will be full of fun. Not only will there be spectacular
new Christmas lights, but a Christmas events programme is
planned that will put a new dimension into festive shopping
in the town.
On every Saturday
until 23rd December, Stranraer town centre will ring to the
sound of Christmas music with the Creetown Silver Band, Jazz
Pazz and Stranraer’s own Youth Band, all performing. When
there is not live music there will be Christmas music from
a sound system in the Castle of St John.
The events programme
begins on Saturday with carols in Safeway car park, followed
by a lantern procession through the streets to the Castle
Green, where there will be children’s attractions and a Christmas
light switch-on ceremony compered by West Sound’s popular
one of the major event sponsors, will be laying on hot chocolate
and mincepies and roasted chestnuts to keep the cold at bay.
