Harleston's lights are switched on.

Crowds thronged the shopping centre and there was a carnival atmosphere as a stilt walking Jack Frost and cuddly snowmen paraded through the streets. The Britannia Handbell Ringers from Loweestoft added a magical tone as they performed to an appreciative audience beneath sparkling icicle lights outside the Swan Hotel.
