It may have only been the 25th November, and there was no sign of snow, well not the real stuff anyway, but there was a truly festive feel in the air. The Frodsham Christmas Festival was well under way and, it seemed as though everyone and their dog had turned out to brave the cold day and evening air to enjoy a fun filled festival….
…. and not to be left out, the dogs really did turn out to join in with the fun, with the traditional Christmas Festival dog walk starting at the Cheeky Café in Castle Park.
This fashionable pooch wasn’t daft, sporting a very stylish Christmas jumper to keep warm.
Of course, the festival couldn’t run as well as it did without the help of the fantastic volunteers, seen here having their early morning briefing before the fun began.
The Floats made a return this year…
…with some amazing decorations!
Even ‘The Force was with us’!
And it seemed that the Force was with us in more ways than one!
Well, someone had to make sure Mario and Luigi kept to the speed limit didn’t they?
Visitors to Frodsham Library were able to step into a life sized snow globe and capture the moment on camera as they were transported into a magical snowy winter wonderland.
Santa’s Elves weren’t too far away, guiding and giving directions to the various activities taking place around Frodsham. Hmmmm, do those Elves look familiar to you?
The Frodsham Christmas Festival takes many people from all walks of life, and with so many different skills and ideas to bring it all together and make it all happen each year.
But of course, non of the activities would be possible without the organisers, who begin planning the next Christmas Festival just a couple of months after Christmas has finished, while we’re all finishing off the last of the Christmas cake and chocolates and looking forward to the new year and beginning to plan our summer holidays.

So a huge Thank You to you all for giving up so much of your spare time to plan a Superb Christmas Festival for Frodsham, which just gets bigger and better each year!
