Seaton Christmas Light Switch On & Christmas Carnival
AboutSeaton will be kick starting its Christmas celebrations on Saturday 1st December with the return of its Christmas Carnival, light switch on and festive markets, bringing residents a full day of Christmas fun.
The most anticipated part of the day is the Christmas light switch on followed by the enchanting Christmas Carnival. This year the lights will be turned on by the winner from Seaton Town Council's Independent Seaton competition and a member of the Carnival Royal Party. Seaton's residents can watch the Christmas lights being switched on at the Town Square at 5.50pm and for those that are keen to carry on shopping, many of the independent retailers will be staying open late.
To top off the festivities, at 6pm the impressive floats from the Christmas Carnival will begin gliding through the streets of Seaton leaving a trail of Christmas spirit. The carnival will commence from Harbour Road, travel up the Underfleet, down through Fore Street and then on to the Esplanade. This year's line-up will be led by the Fire Brigade, Seaton Majorettes and the royal float featuring a prince and two princesses. Last but not least, Father Christmas will be at the end of the parade and will be stopping in the square to greet children.
