Festival of Lights on Main Street Markham attracted hundreds of residents Friday night. Spectators braved blustery winds and rain to see the Christmas tree light up and enjoy the firework. At the end of somewhat abbreviated program due to the weather conditions children screamed with delight when Santa Claus climbed the stage.
Beside live musical performances, the crowd was entertained by jugglers and stilt walkers. Along the booths offering glitzy Christmas-wares from sparkling hats to glowing sticks, children and parents lined up for a free horse and buggy ride.
