A couple of weeks ago on 9th December, Alan and I went to Bridport’s Late Night Shopping where the majority of the town’s shops stay open later than usual and there are stalls down along South Street as well as fun fair rides for the children and an appearance from Father Christmas. We headed out into the evening a little after it had begun but were able to see and experience the full effect of everyone out having a good time. We even saw a few friends out enjoying the evening, had a coffee from Soulshine Cafe and bought a few things from some of the local shops for the festivities.
I love seeing the town brimming with people and as it is my first Christmas here in Bridport I was happy to snap a few pics to show everyone how many lovely folks were out and about that day.
What sorts of Christmas traditions do your towns hold? Does Father Christmas usually make an appearance, does the Salvation Army Band come around? I’d love to know what other places do to get into the holiday spirit!
