Families and friends enjoyed free hot chocolate and other goodies while Santa Claus made a brief appearance in Aldergrove last Saturday during the annual Christmas parade.
Robin McIntosh, President of Aldergrove Festival Days Society, started the parade by announcing the winners of the Christmas Light-Up Decorating Contests.
The judges awarded the following prizes:
Business Light Up went to The Useable Shop (27173 Fraser Highway). Note: their window display keeps changing as items are sold.
Children’s Door Decorating Contest winner was Carter Grainger (with the help of his Dad, Ryan).
Walter Levy Home Decorating Contest winners were Scott, Natasha, Kendall, Gage, and Tanner Worsfold at 27792 Pullman Ave.
Each winner received a beautiful tree ornament and the Worsfolds will have their name engraved on the perpetual Walter Levy trophy (currently housed at Bob’s Bar and Grill.)
The judges also identified three streets as overall “very nicely lit” and well-worth visiting: 27700-block Pullman Ave; 27300-block 34th Ave; and 26900-block 25A Ave.
