Brrr –it’s cold. And dipping temps only mean that other c-word looms closer. That’s right, Christmas. But let’s not be ridiculous and start the crazy countdown. Let’s ease into the festive season with another beloved c-word. Cost-free.
A little festive flavour
Glasgow gets a little brighter and more beautiful on the 14 November when George Square radiates with light and fireworks ignite the night sky. It kicks off at 7pm but there’s ample entertainment in the lead up to the lights switching on.
Early shopper gets the…samba band
Any of you early festive shoppers will be rewarded on 17 Nov as the Style Mile transforms into a hub of eclectic entertainment from Sachiehall to Argyle Street. Magical elves, flying musicians, a samba band and more await you.
Not totally free but delightful none the less, the Glasgow Christmas Continental Market returns to St Enoch Square as of 15 Nov. We’re especially excited about the many delicious delights – including our absolute favourite, Gluhwein. And you might also find the perfect pressie for that someone special – or yourself.
Lace up your skates as of 23 Nov to join the daring ice-goers in George Square. And the Santa dash on 8 December is not to be missed.
An excellent event with thousands of Santas of all shapes, sizes and ages dashing their way through the city in a five km fun run. £15 entry fee includes a suit with all the trimmings.
Lots to enjoy. So go on – eat, drink, shop, skate, run – and be merry.
