Rain throughout the day threatened the festivity but stopped in time for people to gather and enjoy the Celtic dancing by performers from the Canada Celtic Dance Academy and sing-along of Christmas music led by members of the Chantry Singers.

Mayor Luke Charbonneau with the help of some ‘little’ friends pulled the switch that lit the tree.
