East Finchley Christmas Festival

The weekend just gone was full of Christmas fun and I'm excited to share it all with you!

On Saturday we had a local Christmas festival to turn on the Christmas lights in East Finchley. I have lived in the area for two years now and they haven't done it before so it was very exciting. There were bands and choirs, a European food market and all the local independent shops (and even some pubs!) had set up stalls along our high street. There was such as sense of local pride that I can't wait for the next one to happen and I even found out that not only is there a local orchestra, there's also a ukulele band! I can't decide which one to go to!

Here's a mini photo diary of what was going on in East Finchley :-)

I got to stroke a reindeer!

All the food!

Couldn't decide whether I wanted Candy Floss or try roasted chestnuts for the first time
They closed off one of the streets to make space for a stage!
The local choir singing Christmas songs!
Loving my new bag!
Do you have any local Christmas celebrations going on?

    1. Thanks! Christmas markets always excite me and it was so nice to have one happening at the end of my street.
