Later today, Oadby Town Centre will see the first of three events in the Borough to switch on festive lights.
The annual event will run from 3pm to 7pm and include live music, a funfair, Santa’s Grotto and over 30 stalls.
The lights will be switched on by one of the Leicester Riders Basketball Team.
