The Theme of the all day Extravaganza in Abingdon was Cinderella.
The Oxford Caledonian Pipe Band led the Extravaganza Parade along Stert Street at midday.
In the Parade, The Mayor, Samantha Bowring, led the Town Councillors.
Father Christmas, as always, was at the back of the parade.
The Rotary Club were serving mulled wine and had on display some of their Shelter Boxes. Each ShelterBox contains a tent, water purification kit, blankets, tools, and other necessities to help a family survive after a disaster, and many have been sent to the Philippines. Shelter Boxes are often the first disaster relief to be deployed.
There were stalls and entertainment in the Market Place and a lot more stalls, a Punch and Judy, and some reindeer in Bath Street.
The event was organised by Abingdon-on-Thames Chamber of Commerce, and the main sponsor was the newly re-opened Crown and Thistle. It ended with he lights being switched on and fireworks. There were big crowds to watch.
