Many turn out for Langley neighbourhood celebration

Friday evening in Brookswood was all about the warmth of the Christmas season.

Community members gathered for the Night of Lights hosted by the Brookswood Village Merchants.

Whether it was having pet and people photos with Santa Paws, wrapping their hands around cups of hot chocolate or meeting Elsa, people spent the evening enjoying various activities before the highlight of the Christmas tree lighting.

The evening also featured entertainment, a window decorating contest, cookies, crafts, and a collection of blankets and warm clothing for the needy.
