HUNDREDS of people descended on Cefn Mawr to enjoy the festive atmosphere at the Cefn Christmas Festival.
Crane Street and Well Street were closed at 4pm as crowds gathered to enjoy stalls, food, gifts, Santa’s grotto, fairground rides, husky dogs and mulled wine.
Entertainment was put on by the band Bottom End and the Delta Divas Choir, and children and adults alike got the chance to get up close and personal with the animals of Reptile Man.
One of the organisers, Mike Olignyk, said: “The weather wasn’t great, but that did not affect the day.
“At the time the festival opened the Ebeneezer and George Edwards Hall were packed.
“People were seen throughout the evening coming down in droves and it was a success.
“This is the first time we have held this event and I hope next year will be even better.”
There was also festive entertainment from the Delta Divas carol singers, raffles and competitions.
Tesco donated more than 300 mince pies to the event, none of which were left uneaten by the end.
Mr Olignyk thanked everyone who attended and helped organise the event from the Cefn Business Forum.
