Father Christmas and his reindeers thrill crowds


Festive fever was in full flow when Father Christmas and his six reindeer made a flying visit to meet children in Windsor.

More than 6,000 people lined the streets to see reindeer Jonas, Grunter, Macaroon, Oryx, and calves Duke and Stenoa lead a Christmas parade on Saturday.

Members of the Egham Brass Band led the procession playing seasonal classics such as Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.

They paraded from Castle Hill, down the High Street, and up Peascod Street before finishing in King Edward Court where Santa met children in his grotto.

Children dressed as elves also took part in the procession, which was organised by the Windsor and Eton Town Partnership.

Olivia Burke, seven, who attends Queen Anne First school was one of the lucky young elves who took part.

Her mother Anne, said her daughter had a 'really nice time' and had loved meeting the reindeer and Father Christmas.

The reindeer came from the Cairngorm Reindeer Centre in Aviemore, Scotland, and are on a tour of the UK.
