A large crowd turned out to attend Mid Ulster District Council’s Coalisland Christmas Lights Switch On event, yesterday evening, Sunday 3 December.
The switch on event took place at the Cornmill in the town centre from 5pm – 7pm.
There was lots of festive fun from 5pm -6.30pm, including Christmas music performed by Reverb live on stage, face painting, walkabout characters, and the opportunity to meet Santa in his cosy grotto.
Craic Theatre then took to the stage and entertained the crowd before Santa and Chair of the Council, Councillor Dominic Molloy counted down and officially illuminated the town and new look Christmas tree for the festive period just before 7pm.
As well as all this, the Coalisland Fianna GFC Annual Christmas Fair, returned to the Parochial Centre from 1pm - 5pm.
