Christmas on the LaHave

The sound of singing filled the streets and lights flooded the sky as Bridgewater celebrated the festive season last night.

Record numbers turned out for the town's annual "Christmas on the LaHave" celebrations which included live entertainment, fireworks and a parade of more than thirty floats.

Event organizer and town councillor Bill McInnis says the event brings out the festive spirit in all who attend.

"People look forward to these types of events, when they become an annual event, in particular that time of year. And it give the community a sense of community... and anyone who at that function last evening would agree, there seems be an awful lot of happy people," say McInnis.

McInnis is guessing more than five thousand people attended the festivities.

The event is in its sixth year of operation, the parade was added the event bill four years ago.
