Huntingdonshire District Council joined forces with One Leisure to provide entertainment as well as food and drink stalls.

Sunday’s event, in Bridge Street, was the first of three. There will be more entertainment on December 13 and 20, at 10.30am and 2.30pm.

Members of the public can enjoy hot chestnuts, balloons and Christmas cookies, made by the Zest café team at One Leisure, St Ives.

Mulled wine and mince pies, some of which were donated by Morrisons in St Ives, were also available.
