Crowds flocked to Warwick last night (Thursday) as the Victorian Evening and lights switch-on kicked off Christmas in the town.
The Victorian evening featured food, stalls, fairground rides, a Christmas tree festival and the unveiling of the new canopy of lights, which were switched on by Warwick Mayor Mandy Littlejohn and Father Christmas.
Revellers were entertained by live music from Thom Kirkpatrick and the Folly Brothers and many shops stayed open late.
The evening also welcomed the launch of the annual Christmas Tree Festival in St Mary’s church.
The popular competition will once again showcase a selection of trees decorated by schools and businesses to celebrate the season.
Vote for your favourite tree until December 6. The church will also host its school choral concert on November 27, where all are invited to hear children sing from 10.30am.
Father Christmas will be in the church on November 28, with a performance by Da Capo at 11am. The Winter Wonderland gift fair is on Saturday at The Court House, and Warwick Rocks Christmas on December 6.
