They even have an Elf Lounge so they can enjoy a cuppa and chat on grotto days. Santa comes to town for the Christmas Lights Switch On and Christmas Market and joins in the fun of the day. The Elves are always busy raising funds for their work and rely on local people and businesses to support the Christmas lights display each year.
In 2021 Helensburgh will become a Christmas Town again on the 20th November when the Christmas Lights are switched on. Visitors and residents welcome in Colquhoun Square, Helensburgh, for a family fun day and children of all ages cheer for Santa as he presses the magic button to begin the Christmas season in Helensburgh.
