Lincoln was swamped with festive cheer this weekend, with dashing Santas and alternative mini Christmas markets.
In the Bailgate, hundreds of people donned Santa outfits to take part in the national Great Santa Run. Runners included Lincoln MP Karl McCartney, dogs and infants.
The Alternative Christmas Market made its second return at The Healthy Hub on December 11 and 12, offering a wider range of stalls than previously.
Uphill, The Lawn hosted a mini-market named The Spirit of the Christmas Market. Visitors were treated to a hot climate and exotic plants while browsing stalls.
