The children’s fun begins with the annual Breakfast with Santa hosted by the Aldergrove Kinsmen Community Centre, from 9 to 11 a.m. Boys and girls of all ages are welcome to dine with the Jolly Old Elf, but pre-registration is required so that caterers can prepare enough food for all the guests.  Call 604-856-2899 to let the centre staff know you are coming.

Then in the afternoon it’s the Aldergrove Elk’s 20th annual Christmas Children’s Celebration.

Children will enjoy visiting with Queen Elsa and Madam Butterfly, posing for pictures with Santa Claus, as well as refreshments and a showing of the Disney movie “Frozen.” There is also a free draw for child’s bike.

It all takes place from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 13 at the Aldergrove O.A P. Hall on the corner of 273 Street and 30 Avenue, just one block south of Fraser Highway. Pre-registration is not required at this event.

It will be followed by the 21st annual Christmas Light Up Parade, starting at 6 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 13.

The Christmas Parade, sponsored by Aldergrove Agricultural Fair and Festival Association and the Township of Langley, takes place along Fraser Highway, from 270 Street to 273 Street. Hot chocolate stations will be set up along the parade route and Aldergrove Girl Guides will also be collecting food donations for the Food Bank along the parade route, so be sure to bring non-perishable food items for the Food Bank.

After the parade, from 6:30 to 8 p.m., come to the Extra Foods parking lot on 272 Street and see what’s happening on the Township of Langley’s Spirit Stage.
