Enjoy a Very, Merry, Clarkston Christmas

The annual Winter extravaganza in Clarkston, ‘A Very, Merry, Clarkston Christmas’, will take place on Saturday, November 16.

Once again, the Business Improvement District (BID) turns the town into a Winter Wonderland to celebrate the festive season!

As always, you can expect to see a fabulous Christmas Market (both indoors and out!), Santa’s Express train offering rides to visit the man himself in his Grotto, food. & drink tent, pony treks, funfair rides, live stage entertainment, a fantastic firework finale and much more.

The finishing touches to the event are being added, but it is missing just one thing - a special Santa’s helper, who will press the big green button that will set off the spectacular firework finale!

To help choose that person, the organisers are looking for you to come up with a name for their very own I Love Clarkston elf!

All you have to do is put your suggestion in the comments on the I Love Clarkston Facebook page, alongside who you think should help switch on the lights (they must be 12 or under and have permission from a parent or guardian), and Santa will choose his favourite!

The winner will not only get to press the button, but they will be the first to ride the Santa Express train, visit the Grotto and be treated to lunch and dinner in the town along with their family!

Suggestions will be accepted up until 5pm on Thursday 14 November. Winner must be available on Saturday 16 November.

The event takes place on November 16, Midday - 6.30pm at Clarkston Hall.
