Santa Claus was the special guest of honour during Thursday's successful Christmas Tree Lighting hosted by Swift Current's Downtown Business Association.

The annual kick off event to the Christmas season attracted a large crowd to the downtown Market Square for a fun family evening.

Visitors were treated to a marshmallow roast, hot chocolate, and free wagon rides.

The tree lighting occurred at 7 p.m., following a countdown and a shout of "Let's Go Riders!" when the switch was thrown to turn on the tree lights.

Santa and Mrs. Claus arrived shortly after 7 p.m. aboard a Swift Current Fire Department firetruck, and they stayed for well over an hour to greet a long line of anxious youngsters.
