Stony Stratford: Lantern parade and switch on. Fair, santas grotto, Morris dancers (creep me the fuck out) stalls and loads more entertaining Christmassy bits.
Right that’s it that’ll do, That’s my list of Christmas Light Switch On’s . Looks like I’ve missed a few of the light switch on’s already. Few eager beavers out there, MK and Aylesbury to name a couple of them.
I’m taking the kids to Bicester village tonight. Not to actually shop (cant afford that shit) but i’ll push the boat out and maybe buy them a doughnut and a hot chocolate so we can see their lights. If its not peeing it down again we might even let them play in the play park!
As i mentioned earlier i’ll have probably missed out a fair few. Just let me know on Facebook HERE and I’ll add them to the list
