St Ives Christmas Lights - Photos

St Ives Guildhall - Christmas Tree

Myself and Jo very much enjoyed The Big Switch On of St Ives Christmas Lights on Friday.

Music from St Ives Concert Band and Kruners Choir - then the Guildhall was lit up by The Mayor.

We then had a walk along The Harbour, Fore Street and High Street. The lights this year are better than ever.

Update: Photos of the 2012 St Ives Christmas Lights are now on the blog: St Ives Christmas Lights 2012

Here are some photos to enjoy.
