Hundreds of people flocked to the inaugural Christmas Family Fun Night in Mosgiel on Saturday.
Event co-ordinator John Bone said the response was “overwhelming”.
“It was packed and they kept coming in droves. It’s a signal from the community something like this is needed.”
He believed the event would return next year.
“It’s back on the menu.”
The event was held in a service lane between Church St and Gordon Rd and its surrounding spaces on Saturday.
