Madam Butterfly will be there with her balloon creations and face painting for the youngsters, and Santa will pose for photos with the children.

There will be hot dogs and refreshments, and goodie bags handed out to all. In addition there will be four door prizes for the boys and girls.

Then at 6 p.m., the Christmas “Light Up” Parade will winds its way through downtown Aldergrove.

Presented by the Aldergrove Festival Days Society, the Christmas “Light Up” Parade runs along Fraser Highway through downtown Aldergrove and includes carol singing and free hot chocolate.
