I didn’t really know what to expect from the Brownhills Christmas Magic 2013 event. It looked really good on paper, but I was curious as to how it would pan out on the day. I was really, really pleasantly surprised.
There were plenty of stalls, activities for the kids including a couple of huge inflatables, the free artificial skating rink, donkey rides and an absolutely captivating bird of prey demonstration. Brownhills really got into the spirit of it, with plenty of businesses involved, and the band who were playing – not sure who they were – were brilliant.
I had a fine time wandering around, and the crowds were out in force, too. It was nice to see the town so busy for a change. Congratulations and thanks are due to the organisers and all who took part – you did the town proud.
That poor lady on stilts, too. That looked like very hard work…
