Wimbledon's Winter Wonderland 2011 event will soon be bringing the town centre alive with a parade, fireworks, celebrities, live music and dance as well as gift and food stalls.

The Wonderland fun kicks off at 5pm on Thursday November 24 and the parade will be led by the traditional Samba dancers from the Taste of Brasil.

Among the event's highlights will be fireworks from the roof of Centre Court shopping centre.

The town's lights will be switched on by Sam Attwater and Anna Williamson from New Wimbledon Theatre's Christmas panto, Dick Whittington.

AFC Wimbledon will be taking a new position on the Piazza where they will be running a human football game and selling merchandise from their stand plus 1st team players and management will be making an appearance.

The parade will start at 6.30pm, with local schools, community groups, dancers and entertainers taking part.

Children from Haslemere and Morden Primary, Creative Kidz & Co and dance company Dancebites are among some of the groups taking part in the parade.

The Mayor of Merton, Councillor Gilli Lewis-Lavender, will also join the parade. She said: "I encourage everybody from the borough to take part in this splendid evening. It is going to be great fun with many activities for people of all ages"
