Callander gets into the spirit of Christmas
Callander is firmly in festive mood following the town’s Christmas light switch-on at the weekend.
Ancaster Square was the location for the winter tradition as the town lit up as part of the Winterfest celebrations on Saturday afternoon.
Santa led the Round Table’s parade down Main Street to the square where a huge crowd gathered for the big switch-on.
The honour of flicking the switch to light up the town fell to the town’s Citizen of the Year, Colin Clark.
Callander Brass were also on hand to play a host of festive songs.
The event was organised by Callander Community Development Trust.
The large Christmas tree was donated by Cambusmore Estate with a number of traders from the town providing mince pies and mulled wine.
Support finance came from the Callander Cooperative Community Fund.
Callander firefighters helped to put up and decorate the tree.
Bollards in the square were also decoratively decked out in Christmas themed yarn livery.
Youngsters also donned their finest fancy dress for the big day.
