Thousands return to Cookstown Switch On event
Thousands turned out to attend the return of Mid Ulster District Council’s Cookstown Christmas Lights Switch On event, on Friday evening, 25 November.
The switch on event took place on William Street from 6.30pm – 8pm. The street came alive with a range of entertainment, including performances from Stewartstown Panto, Tullylagan Pipe Band and Band of Gold, as well as a fantastic Showstoppers Parade.
There was also plenty of on-street entertainment including face painting, The Gaming Bus, Art Cart and lots of character walkabouts for all those Christmas selfies.
Santa then arrived in style to switch on the town’s renowned Christmas lights just before 7.30pm.
A fabulous, fun and festive night was had by all. This year marked the return of the popular Christmas Lights Switch On events following a three-year hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
