On Nov. 27, the annual Heritage Christmas was held at the Historic Park.

The event, presented by the Friends of the Fort St. James National Historic Site, brought in a good crowd as a bonfire warmed many who gathered around eating homemade ice cream as hot dogs were being roasted on a snowy day.

Children took part in craft making and they watched in awe as a festive train set made its way around a brilliantly designed track complete with Santa and all. .

Community members gathered to watch a nativity play as everyone joined in song to celebrate the true meaning of Christmas.

And of course, the day would not have been complete without a visit from jolly old St. Nick who made his rounds delivering candy canes as everyone celebrated a true old fashioned Christmas.
