Taunton Christmas Festival 2012

The Taunton Christmas Festival, the biggest free community event in town is back again.

Large areas of the town were again pedestrianised, and what may look like chaos in the early hours is a well oiled and efficient organisation. Upon arrival we were escorted to our position which was made to measure!

The Christmas Festival was a full day of entertainment which included a fun fair, live music (including performances by Taunton school), Santa sleigh rides with a horse drawn sleigh and reindeer petting!

Cedric was admired throughout the day for his quirky character and wide range of heart-warming teas which were much needed on this cold winters day. A few retail packs were sold for the early Christmas Shoppers/Real tea fans.

The festival finished at 6pm with a fantastic firework display and the switching on of the Taunton Town Christmas lights, a brilliant turnout to a very well organised event!
