This exciting event marks the start of the Christmas period in Ringwood with entertainment for children and families, the turning on of the Christmas Lights and a Christmas Market showcasing local crafts, foods, drinks and gifts. This year there will also be two Santa parades through the town – one at midday as he heads to his grotto and one again in the evening just before the light switch on at 6pm.
Don’t miss Father Christmas arriving at The Furlong at 11.45am on Sunday via horseback! There will be plenty of photo opportunities for all.
The official switch-on will take place at 6pm after a day of festivities and fun throughout Ringwood. There will also be street and stage entertainment, children’s fairground rides and a magical festive market.
Plus for one day only there will be FREE parking in the town centre car parks and free parking for 2 hours as always in the car park next to The Furlong.
This event is organised by Ringwood Events Team acting on behalf of Ringwood Town Council.
