Hamilton (BID) Our Town is delighted to bring to you five dates of festive fun over Christmas starting with our Light Switch on Market this Saturday the 20th on Quarry Street.
The day starts with the opening of our very 1st Christmas market at 10am which run’s through to 6pm. We will have a whole host of fantastic and unique products on sale from around 40 vendors, the majority of which will be 1st time vendors for the town. We also will have our very own Hamilton vendors featuring front and centre surrounded by a great selection of cafe’s, shops and bars.
Then at 12pm the entertainment kicks off from our market stage at the top of Quarry Street, on the bandstand and on the street itself. We have a lots of great music and fun for all the family including Samba Ya Bamba, An Abba Dream, Black star steel band, community choirs, fire performers, face painters and much much more.
We’re also honoured to have the town lights turned on by winners of our search for a Hamilton Hero competition at 6pm from the market on Quarry Street. These are people that have gone above and beyond to support their community through the pandemic.
We’re also delighted to see the return of Smith’s family funfair that will be set up on market days on Townhead Street.
So why not come into town and enjoy a whole day’s worth of Christmas fun every Saturday starting from the 20th November.
