Christmas Lights Stony Stratford

The Christmas season has well and truly arrived. Yesterday the was the "Switch On" day for the Stony Stratford Christmas lights. This is the 50th anniversary of the event.  The big feature of the switch on event is the parade of lanterns - this year with a strong nautical theme.

The Rose & Castle Morris, based at Stoke Bruerne, performed in the afternoon and joined the parade. Their bass drum was used to set the marching rhythm. It looked magnificent.
