Dalbeattie folk were out in force on Saturday to support the town’s Christmas lights.
The organisers held a coffee morning and were delighted to raise £825.
As well as a good turnout of customers, a dozen traders also set up various stalls.
The big switch-on will take place on Friday, December 6, with the High Street shut from 4pm.
There will be entertainment and fairground rides for children from 5pm with the lights being turned on at 7pm.
