There are several towns in Lanarkshire who will be switching on their Christmas Lights this weekend.
Though there’s no big countdown or event, but according to our Council friends in Roads and Transportation, Blantyre will have their tree and street lights switched on at 4.15pm this Sunday, 19th November 2023 at both High Blantyre and Glasgow Road.
If it’s a fantastic market and countdown family fun event you’re after, the nearest is the same day at 5pm at East Kilbride Village. There’s always loads of things to do and a fun atmosphere.
These outdoor switch on and market events are community led, supported by the council. Blantyre currently has no festive outdoor event due to Blantyre Community Committee disbanding during the pandemic though lack of finding further necessary volunteers, increasing costs and funding. We’ll be posting about other towns shortly.
