CHRISTMAS has come to Thurso as around 500 people turned out to watch the town's festive lights being switched on.
Thurso Town Improvements Association held a special parade where people marched through the town centre to switch on the Christmas Lights.
Before the parade, TTIA held its Young Ambassadors Award outside Caithness Horizons paying tribute to youngsters who have made a difference to the town and achieved success over the past year.
Street dance group Rush Dance and Thurso High School Rock Challenge performed at Sir John Square before Santa Claus switched on the festive lights.
