Lochee High Street was packed on Wednesday night as the Christmas lights switch-on took place.
Residents got into the festive spirit, with plenty to keep them entertained as the night went on.
Santa left his reindeer at home this year and instead rode through the streets on a motorbike, much to the delight of the youngsters who had turned out to see him.
He was followed by Dundee Pipe Band before the lights were turned on. The event was staged by a collaboration of groups including Lochee Community Hub, St Mary’s Parish Church and Lochee Parish Church. As well as the excitement of Santa’s arrival, there were plenty of other stalls and events for young and old during the night.
Heather Henry, of the Lochee Events Team, said: “We had the Makaton Choir singing in St Mary’s Church along with Lochee Music Group.
“Frankie Davies kindly subsidised hotdogs and drinks for the kids and gave free soup for the adults.
“Christmas is alive and well in Lochee.”
