Ramsgate Town Council is getting into the festive spirit this year with not one Christmas tree, or two or even three, but FOUR!
The authority says they want to ‘spread the cheer’ with trees in the town centre, the seafront, Ramsgate train station and Newington Community Centre.
Town council clerk Richard Styles said: “We will also have a new centre piece for the town, new motifs and lights in Harbour Street and the trees which will connect the whole town. We decided to spread the love this year and make sure everybody gets something.”
The town’s Christmas light switch on will be taking place on November 25 and will include a local craft fair, lantern workshops, elves workshop with Looping The Loop, children’s rides, the land train and there will be an inflatable helter skelter too!
Santa will be at 26 Harbour Street and available from 2.30pm to 4.30pm.
Live entertainment will start from 1pm. The lights will be switched on in the town centre at 4.30pm.
Ramsgate will also have its very own Northern Lights this year in the shape of a special laser show.
Definitive Special Projects Ltd, a laser light company, bring ‘Aurora Borealis’ to Ramsgate for nine nights between December 8 and 16, where a laser display will be shown across the harbour from 4pm to 10pm.
The event has been arranged by Ramsgate Town Council and Visit Ramsgate.
The annual tradition of lighting up the boats in the harbour will also be taking place.
