The Magic of Christmas
Christmas is a magical time of year in Felixstowe, with thousands coming from across the region to see the Official Christmas Lights switch on and Craft Market event this year held on Saturday 1st December 2018 at 5pm. The fantastic event is organised by Felixstowe Lions Club and supported by Felixstowe Town Council. The Lights will be switched on by the Mayor of Felixstowe from the event stage at the Triangle, Hamilton Road, Felixstowe.
Come and see the fantastic range of gift, food and charity stalls all along Hamilton Road to the Triangle Canopy. If you are interested in having a market stall at this event please contact Sarah Gooch or Sharon Ianuzzi.
Santa’s Grotto, carol singing and live entertainment takes place throughout the afternoon. A children’s candlelight parade (starting at 4.40pm) leads up to the Christmas Lights switch on. Admission is free.
At the beginning of December, Santa and Rudolph visit Felixstowe and tour the town’s streets and homes in their sleigh every weekday evening between 6-8.30pm. This is jointly arranged between the local branch of Save the Children and the Felixstowe Rotary Club, and aims to give all families, particularly children, a great Christmas experience as well as raise as much money as possible for Save the Children and Rotary supported charities.
