A large crowd turned out to witness the switch on and enjoy some mulled wine while listening to carols played by Duns Pipe Band who were specially dressed in Santa outfits for the occasion.

Santa and Mariah arrived in the Market Square by sleigh and after a countdown by the crowd the beautiful tree lights were switched on.

The Duns Summer Festival quad bike raffle draw was also made by Mariah. The winner of the quad bike is MP Calum Kerr. Thanks go to all who purchased tickets.
