The Christmas season was officially kicked off in Creston on Saturday, when Santa arrived during the annual Santa Claus Parade.

Despite the cold weather, both sides of Canyon Street were packed with onlookers of all ages, as floats went by featuring local businesses, the winner and runners-up from the Creston Valley Blossom Festival over-70 pageant, the Prince Charles Secondary School grads of 2012, the Creston Valley Farmers' Market, Yahk Soap Company, Overwaitea Foods and more, with the big guy himself bringing up the rear.

Following the parade, the Creston Community Band performed in Spirit of Creston Square, while Creston Fire and Rescue offered hotdogs and hot chocolate.
