Santa was here
Santa himself flew in from the North Pole especially to be here. He arrived with a wonderful parade
from Lamlash Pier to the green.
He then met all the children to hear what they want for Christmas.
There was Live Music from the Vests
Imagine a mix of Roxy Music, Rolling Stones, Van Morrison and Bowie
mixed in with Cameo and Counting Crows and you’re on your way to
rocking out with ... The Vests !!
The Vests are regulars on the live scene -- in
Glassford anyway at the local pub -- have played as part of the Race For
Life relay event in East Kilbride and are now appearing overseas.
They entertained in the Glenisle after the fireworks.
