Holiday fun seekers young and old headed to Spirit Square for Santa Extravaganza Saturday, Dec. 7.

The event was put on by the Quesnel Downtown Association and included, among other activities, a marshmallow roasting station, a Christmas carol sing-a-long, Miniature Horses from Barlow Creek and, of course, a visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus.

It wasn’t a chill in the winter air that had rosy cheeks peeking out from above collars pulled high and scarves wrapped tight, rather the holiday spirit of a community coming together for a festive and fun night.
