Santa has a chat with one of the many children who attended the free movie event at the Elks Hall in Elkhorn on November 30. Santa took time out of his busy schedule to visit with all those in attendance and checking out what they each hoped to receive at Christmas.
Santa stayed a little longer in Elkhorn to take a ride in the parade - the final event of the Light Up activities.
A large contingent of little "pros" took on the Elkhorn C-Hawks in a street hockey game. Although the C-Hawks were greatly out numbered, they held their own. No report on the score at the end of the game but fun for skaters and audience.
Kristina Walker (l), one of the contestants in the chili cook off. The cook off was a new addition for the light up event. Those attending received a small sample of chili from each of the six contestants and then voted for their favourite. Walker won the event with Darryl Twigg taking second place and Brad McGrath in third.
Elkhorn's Light Up evening was a multi-event. Santa was on the scene,visiting with children and later on, riding a float through the village. A street hockey game and a chili cook-off were just some of the events.
