Event Details

In addition to fundraising, putting up all the Christmas lights and decorating the town’s impressive Christmas tree, Helensburgh’s volunteer elves are thrilled to announce they are planning a very special Switch On Event to launch the start of the town’s 2023 festive season!

This is a fantastic family event with market stalls, fairground rides, local entertainment on the big stage, cuddly characters, street food and of course once it gets dark, Santa arriving on a heritage fire engine with his very special elf escort to press the magic button to begin the Christmas season in Helensburgh.

Helensburgh Christmas Lights are spectacular, and turn Helensburgh into a magical Christmas Town from November to January each year. Charity volunteers from Helensburgh Festive Lighting Charitable Trust, known as the “Helensburgh Elves”, light up the town with 130 festive lights, 16 sparkling trees and a magnificent Christmas tree in Colquhoun Square.

This year the elves have invested over £6,000 in new lights for the tree, and they wish to thank all Helensburgh and Lomond businesses who help the group to bring the lights project to fruition, without their unstinting support the Christmas lights would not happen. If you would like to volunteer or donate you cand do so via www. helensburghfestivelighting.com and https://www.facebook.com/helensburghfestive/
