Paphos Christmas Lights Switch On!
Tonight the Mayor of Paphos switched on the Paphos Christmas Lights, accompanied by marching bands and performing artists. We went along to take a look, and have a gander at some of the other lights around Paphos this Christmas.
Twenty Minutes To Go
We arrived at Kennedy Square 20 minutes early. If this was the UK the place would already be heaving, but here in Cyprus people take these more easily. Nobody is really here yet.
Here Comes The Band
To pass the time we wondered around taking photographs. On the dot of 7PM though, we could here the sound of a Marching Band. And here they come...
The band came to the Square and played a few Christmas Songs. They were replaced by these young dancers.
More Performing Arts
They were replaced by some young ladies in red, who did some more routines.
The Final Countdown
Finally, the Mayor arrived, gave a small speech, and began the countdown.
