STOCKTON Sparkles Christmas Festival which has seen the Christmas Light Switch On, street theatre and market fair continues.

On Sunday, 12 December, you are invited to head along to Stockton High Street to watch the very festive Reindeer Parade at 2pm.

You will see Father Christmas and his entourage of Reindeers as he makes his way along the High Street in his sleigh.

They will be joined by local community drumming groups and local dance performers adding to the Yuletide feel.

Councillor Mary Womphrey, Stockton Council's Cabinet Member for Arts, Leisure and Culture, said: "The Reindeer Parade is always a popular part of Stockton Sparkles. The High Street will be alive to the sights and sounds of Christmas as Santa and his crew are joined by drummers and dancers."

There will also be a programme of Christmas street theatre on Sunday, 12 December on the High Street. Look out for Bell and Bullock - a pair of joy riding reindeers. They have taken Santa's sleigh and will be cruising the streets weaving magic and playing festive tunes.

Parking in all of Stockton Council's short stay car parks will be FREE after 3pm every day until 31 December.
