A fun fair and stalls also added the fun and the crowds gathered for a parade with Santa and his sleigh at Dashwood Square, where the Christmas lights were turned on at the tree before the congregation made its way down into town and watched Queen of Galloway Leilani Bartlett turn on the street lights.

There was also entertainment from The Little Green Frogs, Angus Dick, penninghame School Choir, Newton Stewart Mini Majors and a raffle.
