Santa in town to help launch Oban Win­ter Fes­ti­val

The Oban Times - - News -

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.’
