Stockton Sparkles continued this weekend with a visit from a very important guest - Santa and his entourage of reindeers!
Yesterday (10 December) Santa and his reindeers and elves made their way through Stockton Town Centre spreading Christmas joy and wishes.
Crowds were delighted by the popular event which also saw local youth, school and community groups lead the sleigh along the High Street in a flurry of beautiful costumes and outfits while Apollo Street Band entertained everyone with festive live performances.
Young and old alike made the most of meeting Santa and his furry companions when they stopped for a rest outside the Town Hall.
