Bourne's Magical Christmas Fayre and lights switch on a number one hit
Thousands turned out on Saturday for Bourne's magical Christmas Fayre and lights switch on which was a massive hit.
North Street was full of people young and old getting into the festive spirit as they pottered around stalls, ate food, enjoyed the entertainment on stage and visited a magical sweet shop-themed Grotto in Wake House, before the whole town centre was lit up.
Characters from Cinderlella at the Corn Exchange along with Santa flicked the switch.
"It was fantastic and rain did not stop play," said Claire Saberton, one of the organisers from the Bourne Events Team.
"We had more stalls than usual and the Fayre seemed really busy throughout the day.
"The turnout was outstanding and the community of Bourne really came together for it.
"A lot of families came to the Grotto too and the entertainment on the stage was amazing."
Local acts including Dom Brister, Bourne Schools Choir, LDC Dance, the Tuneless Choir and Brass Band wowed the massive crowds.
Claire also paid tribute to the hard work of so many who worked tirelessly to put the Fayre on.
She added: "The Bourne Events Team would like to say a huge thanks to everyone who helped to make the event such a success.
"We'd like to thank Bourne Town Council, Sainsbury's of Bourne because they donated the Gingerbreadmen for the children to decorate in the Grotto, Debbie at Wake House for the Grotto and John from Two Jays.
"Also massive thanks to South Kesteven District Council, Hill and Clark, Bourne in Business and Newton Fallowell."
The next event for the Bourne Events Team will be the Car Show in June next year.
