Harrogate Christmas Fayre opened today to ensure the town is in full festive swing.

The fayre, which is organised by Greater Manchester events company Market Place and tourism organisation Destination Harrogate, includes town centre stalls selling foods, gifts, and homeware.

There are also fairground rides near the war memorial and children’s entertainment, as well as the Candy Cane Express road train and an open-top bus tour.

The fayre also includes the Harrogate Ice Rink in Crescent Gardens, where there is also a bar and alpine tipi, as well as a carousel, bungee jump and children’s stalls.

The fayre is open daily until December 17, and the ice rink runs until January 7.

Here are some photos from the opening day.
