Festival returns to bring Christmas magic to the bonnie banks

Loch Lomond Shores is hosting its fantastic FREE Christmas festival on the 3rd and 4th December and bringing family festive cheer to visitors looking for a great day out to get them in that festive frame of mind!

The festival will feature a great range of stalls filled with great gift ideas and fresh produce as well as street food, children’s entertainers and rides, and live on-stage entertainment provided by talented performers.

This year the festival will have a Frozen theme – with Frozen characters mingling with the crowds and performing on stage as well as a Frozen family rollercoaster ride right in the heart of the festival overlooking the loch.

The Loch Lomond Shores Express will also be all decked-up for Christmas and offer a festive treat for all the family while our Christmas decorations and lights will be sparkling throughout to create the perfect ‘Instagram’ festive moments.

Indoors our shops are stocked with amazing gift ideas and holiday outfits – including designer brands like Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, Barbour, Rolex, Boss, Paul Smith, French Connection, Phase Eight, Harris Tweed, Jimmy Choo and much more.

Our cafes are also feeling festive with Café Zest offering Turkey lunches, mince pies and festive baking as well as classic afternoon tea.  Our new arrivals – Jurassic Ice Bar and Jurassic Grill – will also be getting in the festive spirit and offer an amazing dinosaur-themed experience for all the family and the perfect place to take a festival breather and enjoy amazing food!

And let’s not forget our most important guest – Santa – who is at SEA LIFE this year from the 2nd to 23rd December.  You can book your visit to Santa as part of your day at the festival by visiting https://www.visitsealife.com/loch-lomond/explore/events/santa-at-sea-life/.

Commenting on the festival, Audrey Calder from Loch Lomond Shores says:

“Last year was magical, seeing everyone have such a great time and get in the festive spirit, so we’re really excited about this year’s festival!  The festival combines all the great things on offer at our food festivals but adds some festive magic for children as well as some weatherproofing to make it comfortable for all our festival goers.

“We’ll be welcoming back lots of exciting performers as well as Cassi from Radio Clyde, popular market and street food vendors, rides and much more.  The big addition to this year’s festival is our Frozen family rollercoaster that will be right in the heart of the festival and provide amazing views of the loch and the stage.”

The festival will take place on the 3rd and 4th December and be open both days from 10am to 5pm.
