Wonderful weekends in St Ives

St Ives in December just keeps getting bigger! This year, there will be fun-filled entertainment for all the family taking place over three wonderful weekends.

On Saturday 1st December, the St Ives Lantern Parade dances its way through the town for the official Christmas Lights Switch-on, a sign that the festivities really have begun. The following weekend is one for the children and young-at-heart, starting on Friday 7th December when Father Christmas arrives on the high tide, safely escorted by the RNLI. The next day, he’ll be waiting in his Winter Wonderland Grotto with his elves and presents from the North Pole, plus a special visit from the St Ives Mermaid.

Then, on Saturday 15th December, you can eat your way around the popular Food Trail, or feed your brain on the History & Mystery of St Ives Walk, or do both!
