Johnstone Christmas Lights switch-on


On Saturday 1st December, Houston Square in Johnstone town centre was the venue for the big Christmas Lights 2018 switch-on.

People from all over Johnstone and surrounding areas had a day full of entertainment centred around the Bandstand in Houston Square.  There was also all the fun of the fair to add to excitement of the Christmas Lights switch-on.

Johnstone was the last of the three Renfrewshire towns to have their Christmas Lights switch-on party.  Last Saturday, 24 November it was the turn of Renfrew and the week before that, Saturday 17 November, it was the massive Paisley Christmas Lights switch-on.

Congratulations to all those involved including the many staff at Renfrewshire Council.  Pictures show the Bandstand in Houston Square, Johnstone.
