REVIEW: 2017 CHRISTMAS LIGHTS & CAROL SERVICE 
The Countdown to Christmas gets underway in Inverness on Sunday November 19th as Santa arrived to help Provost Helen Carmichael turn on the city’s dazzling display of Christmas Lights.

Families gathered at Crown Primary School at 5.15pm on the night to take part in the Christmas Torchlight Procession to the Town House with the Provost and Santa and host Nicola McAlley of STV.

This year’s parade was led by the combined City of Inverness Senior and Youth Pipe Bands in suitable Christmas attire and featured a number of costumed characters and stiltwalkers.


The Parade ended outside Inverness Town House where there was a surprise in store for everybody when the building unexpectedly burst into light.


The marchers then followed Santa the Old High Church for the annual Christmas Carol Service - Ding Dong Merrily Old High which featured a number of much loved traditional favourites performed by the Joint choir from St Stephen's and the Old High churches.

Councillor Bet McAllister of the Inverness Events and Festivals Working Group said: “Our Christmas Lights Switch On event is undoubtedly one of the highlights of the year for the younger members of our community and it was great to seeing the excitement in their eyes. There is always something magical about the moment when they get their first glimpse of Santa Claus as he arrives to help the Provost turn on our Christmas Lights.“
