Father Christmas visited Seahouses last night to help the village switch on its Christmas Lights.
His special helper on the night was three-year-old Tyler Annison, who flicked the switch to the delight of the gathered crowds.
The festive mood was encouraged with carol singing by Village Voices, who were joined by locals of all ages.
The display features some new arrangements this year, including Santa in his rowing boat.
