It’s beginning to look a bit like Christmas…

 

This evening, hundreds of people took to the streets of Gibraltar to see the Christmas lights get switched on. The Festival of Light officially kicks off the festive season in this part of the world and did it in style.

 
Children from local dance schools, the Gibraltar Academy of Music and a school choir took to the stage to entertain the crowds ahead of the main event. 

New for this year, a light show was beamed onto the façade of the City Hall, which brought a snow flurry to the Piazza.

  
The show brought oohs and gasps from the crowd.

  
There was even a sneaky peak at Santa and his elves’ workshop which delighted the smaller members of the crowd.

  

 
The British and Gibraltar national anthems featured in the
soundtrack accompanying the film and drew applause from those watching.
 
  In thought the show was a really lovely touch. It was paid for by three local firms and was a fantastic production.

 
After a countdown, the lights came on kicking off the festive season here. They will stay lit until after the Cavalcade on 5th January.

   

Well done Gibraltar, our family had a really lovely evening. I guess I’d better start getting organised now, Christmas is coming!
