Christmas Fair 2021

entry picture

A special day for Kirkby Lonsdale
on the first Saturday of December
When Father Christmas comes to visit
a tradition to treasure and remember

Santa rides in a horse drawn carriage
he waves his wand at the unlit trees
One by one the tree lights switch on
he has magical power, everyone agrees

Crowds line up on narrow pavements
jostle for the perfect place to stand
Wait impatiently for the man himself
whilst listening to the marching band

Wrapped up in warm winter coats
children with rosy cheeks all aglow
Toddlers tucked up in their buggies
watch the parade and wish for snow

Unfortunately due to Coronavirus
Santa cancelled his visit last year
Shops switched on their own lights
bringing the town much needed cheer

This year things will bring some changes 
with some new features and additions
Local community led events 
a blend of new and old traditions 

There’s alpine Christmas market chalets
selling gifts and delicious treats
A handmade lantern procession 
and carole singing through the streets

Late night shopping and indoor market
selling lovely gifts for everyone
Watch the Christmas light switch on
then get all your festive shopping done 

A new and magical event this year
Peters Promise an “Awfully Big Adventure”
A winter outdoor theatre production
sure to bring much delight and pleasure 

The town will look beautiful and festive
at this most wonderful time of year
All the lights will shine bright at night
to bring us all some Christmas cheer
