The City of Pitt Meadows began the Christmas season with its annual community celebration called A Pitt Meadows Christmas on Friday evening at Spirit Square.

People had their photos taken with the ice sculpture or a sleigh pulled by miniature horses, and Mayor John Becker and city council were joined by Santa and Mrs. Claus in throwing the switch to light up the city Christmas Tree.

The event was first held in 2008 with approximately 400 people, but there were many times that number on Friday evening. They were there for the caroling, sweets, crafts and children’s activities, and live entertainment brought by Showstoppers Performance Academy, Red Velvet Music and others.
