My Paisley with… Santa Claus

Wednesday 14th November, 2018

Santa Claus is coming to town – and he can’t wait to be part of all the festive fun at Paisley’s Christmas Lights Switch-On 2018!

While he might be the world’s busiest man at Christmas time, Father Christmas has taken a few minutes of his time to speak to before the big event.

Find out how to see the jolly one and what he’s looking forward to at this year’s switch-on.

Where will children be able to see you at Paisley’s Christmas Lights Switch-On?

Children, mums and dads, grannies and granddads can come along to Paisley Town Centre on Saturday 17 November. The event starts at 12pm – and at 1:30pm, I take to my sleigh with the reindeer around the centre of Paisley.  The Provost said she wants to come along as well.  If you are arriving by car, come early to get a parking spot as many roads will be closed.  Later in the afternoon I will be in the Grotto at Paisley Shopping Centre, so come along and say hello.

What’s your favourite part of the event?

My favourite part of the event is seeing all the happy Paisley buddies enjoying themselves before Xmas.  There is a happy and joyous atmosphere around.
