South Ribble Mayor Mary Green said: “It was great, a bigger event than last year.”
And she praised all the volunteers and helpers who made it possible.
She added: “We had some fairground rides for the children and a Santa’s grotto near the market.
“Dave Spikey came and switched on the lights with me – the crowd seemed to like him.
“If that attracts people into Leyland then the more the merrier.
“All in all, I don’t think we did too badly given the weather.”
