Declan Slaney describes to Santa in detail what he really wants for Christmas

Plenty of families and kids were waiting for Santa outside and then inside the Elks’ Hall on Friday, Nov 24th as part of the Festival of Lights and McBride Chamber’s Shop Local event. The community welcomed Santa as he made his way down Main Street at 6pm and then people visited and took photos with him inside.

There was hot chocolate, sweets, games for kids, holiday music, local musicians.

Parents came prepared to take their own photos, and the site Photo Elf was available for family photos.
