Santa arrived in Downtown Abbotsford on Sunday afternoon and welcomed children of all ages to visit with him and Mrs. Clause.

For the youngsters, there were many make-and-take activity booths, as well as free hot chocolate and cookies.

Stage entertainment included such groups as Topaz. The 861 Silverfox air cadet band escorted Santa in a vintage fire truck to his seat in the special tent under the Christmas tree.

The tree lighting took place at 5 p.m. For photos of today’s event, visit the Abbotsford News on Facebook or Flickr.
