Around 100 residents turned out as the switch was flicked to illuminate a giant Christmas tree on Friday.
Schoolchildren and parents braved the chilly temperatures for the event in Haypark Road, all of which was made possible by a fundraising committee set up via Facebook.
Head of Muir Primary School P7 pupil Olivia Weir was given the honour of switching on the decorations.
Anne Calder, a member of the fundraising committee, praised the support shown by villagers who helped to raise the £1400 needed for the switch-on ceremony.
