Langley City’s eighth annual Magic of Christmas parade takes place this Saturday.

The parade begins at 6 p.m. and travels through Langley City’s downtown area. Click here to see the exact route.

Again this year, the guests of honour will be Santa and Mrs. Claus and the popular pair will again arrive in style, nestled in the back of a 14-foot decorated carriage, pulled by two black and while draft horses. The horses and carriage are from  John and Ann Bowles of Rocking Horse Carriage and Wagon Rides.

Over 45 entries have registered for this year’s parade, including many colourful floats, equestrian entries, community groups, clowns and more. Members of the public are invited to come early and have a cup of hot chocolate at the Langley Christmas Bureau, 20550 Fraser Highway.

Two roads will be closed from 4:30 p.m. until 7:15 p.m. They are Fraser Highway, from 203 to 208 Streets, and 56 Avenue from 203 Street to Fraser Highway.

Barricades will be manned to allow local business access. To  view a map of the parade route, visit www.downtownlangley.com.
