THE Village of Tarbolton was turned into a winter wonderland as Santa arrived, thanks to some little helpers.

Pupils from Tarbolton Primary helped bring festive joy as Santa paid a visit on his magical sleigh.

Families lined the streets for Father Christmas as he waved to the adoring crowd.

There was a great atmosphere and plenty of smiles all round as the village celebrated Christmas.

The Ayr Advertiser was there to capture all the pictures from a wonderful night.
