Magherafelt District Council held a Magical Christmas event in the Old Market Yard on 28th November 2009.
Hundreds of people flocked to the event to taste the treats that were on offer in the Speciality Food Market. NI Good Food provided regular food demonstrations, hosted by local food experts Robert Ditty and Sean Owens (G2 Restaurant).
Children of all ages enjoyed the Christmas colouring competition sponsored by NI Good Food, the winner of which was Aoife McSwiggan, Magherafelt who won a £10 voucher for Cuddy's!
The day came to a close with the Christmas tree lights switch-on in the market town with songs from the Mid-Ulster School of Music, seasonal stilt walkers and a children's trail.
