Santa in town to help launch Oban Winter Festival
Families came out en mass on Saturday to help celebrate the launch of this year’s Oban Winter Festival. Bid4Oban event manager Neil Mackay said: ‘It was wonderful to see the reindeer parade and Christmas lights switch on. It’s been so successful and every year we have seen an increase in numbers. Not only were we very lucky with the weather, but the sterling work carried out by lighting officer Ryan McGlynn and his team from Argyll and Bute Council made sure everything slotted into place perfectly. Thanks to all the organisations such as Oban Pipe Band, who helped to create a great atmosphere at another fantastic event in the Love Oban calendar.’
