Lomond Shores lights

Lennox Herald - - THE TICKET - Carla Tal­bot

Thou­sands of peo­ple are ex­pected to gather at Loch Lomond Shores for the Christ­mas lights switch-on and fire­work dis­play this week­end.

The free event on Sun­day is ex­tremely pop­u­lar, with around 15,000 peo­ple at­tend­ing last year.

This year prom­ises to be even big­ger and bet­ter, with extra dec­o­ra­tions and ac­tiv­i­ties, in­clud­ing the launch of a con­ti­nen­tal­style Christ­mas mar­ket with roast chest­nuts, mulled wine, Ger­man sausages, gin­ger­bread and treats.

Other ac­tiv­i­ties in­clude face­painters, bal­loons, a car­toon­ist and a carousel.

The Kilted Skir­lie restau­rant will have a spe­cial fes­tive menu avail­able on the day and is tak­ing book­ings for ta­bles with a van­tage point from which to view the fire­works.

Lomond Shores man­ager Au­drey Reid said: “We’re very ex­cited about Christ­mas this year.

“The lights and fire­works event has been re­ally pop­u­lar so we’re ex­pect­ing a good turnout.”
