The Burns Lake Christmas parade brought smiles to the faces of many children in town on Nov. 28.
Despite the severe cold, many people traded the comfort of their own homes to wait for Santa Claus.
The parade started at the Burns Lake Public Library and continued along Government Street until it reached Hwy. 35. After the parade, the community gathered at Pioneer Park for the Christmas light up.
Village council served people hot chocolate and Babine Forest Products handed out goodies while the Lakes District Community Choir sang and spread the Christmas spirit. Mayor Luke Strimbold lit up the tree, and just like that, the Christmas season had officially begun.
