The rain cleared up just in time for the an­nual Carols by Can­dle­light at the week­end and the cold weather did not stop fam­i­lies en­joy­ing the event.

Christ­mas in the Park was fol­lowed by the carols, held at the Tim­ber Park on Sun­day with lots of free ac­tiv­i­ties and food pro­vided by the com­mu­nity.

Event co­or­di­na­tor Lisa Hen­der­son said she thought hun­dreds of peo­ple showed up over the course of the two events.

“This event was all free thanks to the com­bined ef­fort of our churches,” she said.

“We had some great vol­un­teers from the church and the rest of the com­mu­nity who have also helped make this event run smoothly.”

There was a sausage siz­zle, ap­ples from New­ton Or­chards, pop­corn, the Who Gives a Crepe stall, a bouncy cas­tle, a train ride do­nated by Lions and more, set up for peo­ple to en­joy.
