The Abingdon Christmas Extravaganza Festival is a month away on Saturday 29th November. The first lights were being put up today in preparation. This included several red and white Christmas Trees down Stert Street, and assorted lights down Bath Street and West St Helen Street.
The larger street decorations will follow in the coming days.
A large number of shops are already well prepared for Christmas. Others will have to first take down Halloween pumpkins before turning on the real glitz for the biggest commercial festival of the year.
