The City of White Rock officially got into the holiday spirit on Saturday (Nov. 27) with the Christmas on the Peninsula event.

The annual celebration, held in uptown White Rock – just outside the White Rock Community Centre in Miramar Plaza – kicked off with a parade at 4 p.m., followed by a tree-lighting ceremony at 4:30 p.m.

Carolers and other musicians were also part of the festivities, singing Christmas favourites while dressed in old-fashioned costumes.

The event is co-ordinated by the Christmas on the Peninsula Society.
