Light up Peterhead have pledged to continue bringing festive cheer to the town, despite the impact of Covid-19.
The popular Christmas event attracted more than 1,500 people last year to entertainment including a lorry parade, a visit from the Cairngorm reindeer and fairground rides.
While many events nationwide have been cancelled due to the pandemic, the Light Up Peterhead committee is determined to spread Christmas cheer with a “one off” online event on Saturday, November 21.
Councillor for Peterhead North and Rattray, Dianne Beagrie is “delighted that Light Up Peterhead are still going to bring festive cheer to our town during these difficult times.”
Mrs Beagrie, who is also involved with the Light Up Peterhead committee said: “The light up event won’t manage to take place but we still plan to put up the Christmas lights and the Christmas trees.
“We have other ideas to involve the community in other ways too.”
MP for Banff and Buchan, David Duguid added: “Thousands of people normally turn out to support the Christmas lights switch-on event in Peterhead.
“Given the ongoing uncertainty around public gatherings, however, I think organisers are right to plan a virtual event instead.
“I am sure the community will be very supportive and I look forward to seeing what is proposed.”
Updates will be shared on the Light Up Peterhead Facebook page.
