The big switch on

Despite the appalling weather we had yesterday, this didn't seem to dampen spirits at the Xmas market. Come 5 o'clock, a good crowd gathered around the tree outside The Barge for carol singing and the switching on of the Christmas lights.

Your BC roving reporter was there, albeit still hungover, a bit soggy, and not as full of festive cheer as we'd have liked. We did manage to mumble our way through some carols, and attempt a few paparazzi shots of local celeb Patrick Baladi counting down to the big moment. Were any of you there?
