Cambuslang residents braved the cold of a chilly Sunday evening for the annual Christmas lights switch-on.
A big stage was put in place to provide a focus for the entertainment, which got underway at noon with a Camglen community radio roadshow, before dancers from local groups performed on stage.
There were also festive sing-a-longs, prizes and music all hosted by Real Radio DJ Paul Harper.
The audience enjoyed a Steps tribute act, with many in the crowd joining in with their memorable dance routines, to keep them warm.
Earlier in the morning the Main Street had been closed off to allow rides to be put in place for revellers – and a mix and mingle balloon artist/magician was also on hand to amuse the audience during the course of the afternoon.
Then, just before 5pm, South Lanarkshire Provost Eileen Logan was joined by Santa Claus and other special guests for the countdown to the big switch on, which was performed by a lucky youngster selected from the audience.
The lights were switched on, which triggered a flurry of fake snow. As the crowds dispersed, festive music was played.
MP Tom Greatrex had hoped to go along with his young family, but the sickness bug going around the area prevented him from taking along the twins.
He said: “As in previous years, there was a good atmosphere in Cambuslang - so hopefully next year we’ll all be able to go along as a family!
“It was great to go down to the Main Street and see everyone having a great time. Every year, it helps give the people a bit of a boost at just the right time, when it’s getting dark and really cold.”
