Aberdeen's Winter Festival Christmas Lights
Sun 24 Nov 2013 - Sun 5 Jan 2014
Aberdeen City Centre is festooned with festive lighting and decoration this winter. Other communities around the City also take part with their own festive lighting on lamp-posts.
Aberdeen's main thoroughfare (Union Street) is the centre piece with 11 cross street lighting all with a Christmas theme.
The lights are switched on during a colourful parade of floats with music and festive characters on Sunday 24 November 2013 from 5.30pm.
The lights are fitted with timers so automatically turn on at dusk and are switched off at dawn. This ensures the lights won't come on during the day when it's sunny and are less noticeable, saving energy.
