Christmas lights countdown starts in Banbury
The switch-on will be the highlight of the day but there will also be a host of other activities including a festive market in the Market Place, a fairground and Santa's Grotto with free face painting.
There will be dance, choir and pantomime performances and a firework display.
They are Emily Barker-Fox, aged seven, and six-year-old Charlotte Atherton whose designs will be reproduced on the front and back of the official Banbury Town Council Christmas card.
The event takes place between 1pm - 7pm and is organised by the town council, supported by Castle Quay Shopping Centre.
