ONE OF THE highlights of the Tilbury year is the switch on of the Christmas lights.
You have to come down and enjoy it. The organisers from the Tilbury Riverside Project and others put in such a lot of effort.
All the fun starts at 4.30pm with local school choirs and dance groups singing and dancing on the festive stage by the clock tower.
Father Christmas willl be arriving by steam engine at 4.40 with all his presents for the children waiting in his grotto at the Sunshine Centre.
The switch on will happen at just after 6pm.
Don’t forget to have fun on all the rides and wrap up warm, as it is all outside!
See you on Friday 6th Dec for a great local community event!
