Thousands of well-bundled spectators lined the chilly streets of downtown Cloverdale to watch Sunday evening's Parade of Lights.

The popular annual event featured a massive procession of spectacularly-lit big rig trucks, decorated vintage automobiles, and a range of community floats.

Many children in the crowd carried glo-sticks and light sabre-style wands.

The parade wrapped up with the arrival of the man of the hour, Santa Claus, carried along atop a float that featured the jolly old elf in a sleigh pulled by two reindeer.
