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?
